Warning! If you read this post, you will learn how to make gluten free chocolate cake in 5 minutes. If it is not in your best interest to be perpetually 5 minutes away from chocolate cake, then stop reading now. You’ve been warned!

Okay, now for the fun stuff. Diana G. just emailed me to let me know that she’d made gluten free chocolate cake in a mug in her microwave using my gluten free flour mix. She was also kind enough to send the recipe and pictures, so I wanted to post it to the blog before it got lost in my email.

Hi Mary,
I made a 5-minute chocolate cake in a mug (using a microwave) the other day that turned out beautifully. I used the original recipe, substituting the wheat flour with your AP flour and 1/2 tsp. xantham gum. I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be exactly like it did when I used wheat flour, with the only difference being it was GF. It’s dangerous, though, because chocolate cake is only 5 minutes away at any time of day or night. 🙂 Diana

This is the recipe I used that turned out and tasted perfectly.

  • 4 Tablespoons Mary Frances’ AP GF flour mix
  • 1/2 tsp xantham gum
  • 4 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 Egg
  • 3 Tablespoons milk
  • 3 Tablespoons oil
  • 1 Coffee Mug


  1. Mix flour, sugar and cocoa:
  2. Spoon in 1 egg
  3. Pour in milk and oil, and mix well
  4. Put in microwave for 3 minutes on maximum power (1000watt)
  5. Wait until it stops rising and sets in the mug (It won’t overflow, eventhough it looks like it might)
  6. Tip contents out of mug onto saucer and enjoy!
  7. It says it makes enough for two, but it was enough for just me! LOL
