1-Minute Chocolate Cake in a Cup
  • Chef: Helen Tzouganatos 
  • Serves: 1
  • Time: 1 minute


  • 3 tbsp plain gluten-free flour*
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp cocoa or raw cacao
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 tbsp preferred milk
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil or softened butter
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

To serve

  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • Ice cream


Sift dry ingredients together in a bowl. Add remaining ingredients and stir well to combine.

Pour mixture into a coffee cup and microwave for 50-70 seconds. Less microwave time results in a more molten texture. 

Dust with cocoa and serve with ice cream or dollop cream.
