The common misconception of baking is that it can be time-consuming. Some people see a cake and believe it could have taken all day to make, but the truth is, baking can take very little time and effort! Sometimes it only takes 30 minutes to prep and bake a dozen cookies! But baking also doesn’t need to take place in the oven – a microwave is fantastic for specific treats and takes almost no time at all!

Use a GE Microwave for more than just warming up your leftovers. Try making this chocolate cake in a cup recipe and find out how you only need a couple minutes to make dessert in a microwave.

Ingredients for your mug cake

  • 1 Egg
  • 4 TBSP Sugar
  • 2 TBSP Oil (Canola oil, vegetable oil, olive oil, etc.)
  • 1 TBSP Flour
  • 2 TBSP Cocoa Powder

Put it all together and what do you get?

This may be the easiest cake that you’ve ever made in your entire life – and it only takes 1 minute and 40 seconds to bake! Just add all the ingredients into a mug and stir until completely blended. Once you’re done with that you just plop it in the microwave for 1 minute and 40 seconds or until it starts to look dry. Take it out and dig in! We’d say it’s simple as pie but really, it’s simple as cake.
