Chocolate Espresso mug cake recipe

For those of you that want to try a taste of Vencakelini

5w ago

I wanted to share the recipe for my Vencakelini that I posted for John's challenge. This is a chocolate espresso mug cake. It only takes around 5 minutes total to make, so no excuses not to have a taste of Vencakelini.

Here's the link to the original recipe as well, but I have changed it to what I think it needed to be. This is moist and not overly sweet, so you may need to adjust sugar to your likeness.


Chocolate espresso mug cake



  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 TBSP sweetened cocoa
  • 3 TBSP instant espresso
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 TBSP granulated sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 TBSP vegetable oil
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract


  1. In a bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients.
  2. Add all the wet ingredients to the bowl with the dry ingredients.
  3. Whisk until well combined and no lumps.
  4. Pour into a microwave-safe mug.
  5. Place paper towel in microwave and set mug on top. This is incase of overflow.
  6. Microwave on high. Start with 70 secs. My microwave takes about 2 minutes.
