Recipe of the Week: 5-minute chocolate mug cake

Each week, Let’s RV will publish one recipe each week from the RV Centennial Cookbook authored by Evada Cooper.

The book features a collection of recipes submitted by RVers themselves. The company is providing the recipes in hopes of encouraging RVers to submit more recipes to be included in a new edition expected to be published soon.

This week’s recipe for 5-minute chocolate mug cake and was submitted by Harriett Miller of Fort Wayne, Ind. Since 2007, she has been a member of RVing Women’s Ohio River Valley and Great Lakes Chapters. She owns a 1996 Minnie Winnie.


  • 4 Tablespoons flour
  • 4 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 Tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tablespoons milk
  • 3 Tablespoons oil
  • 3 Tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
  • Small splash of vanilla extract
  • 1 large microwave-safe coffee mug


Add dry ingredients to mug and mix well. Add egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil, and mix well. Add chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, then mix again.

Put mug in microwave and cook for three minutes at 1,000 watts. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don’t be alarmed! Allow to cool a little and tip out onto a plate if desired.

This can serve two, if you want to feel slightly more virtuous. Why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world. Because now we are only five minutes away from chocolate cake any time of the day or night.
