Chocolate Mayonnaise Mug Cake by Cindy Flores Martinez

Have you ever had chocolate mayonnaise cake? I heard about it for years but never tried it. The idea of mixing mayonnaise and chocolate didn’t sound very appetizing. But when I saw the recipe for a chocolate mug cake that substituted mayonnaise for egg, I was intrigued. I decided to give it a try, and what a surprise. It was delicious! There wasn’t the slightest flavor of mayonnaise in it, and the texture was super moist.

As a fan of dark chocolate, I created my own mayonnaise mug cake recipe using dark cocoa instead of regular cocoa. It was better than I had imagined! I think you'll like it too. Here’s the recipe.

Dark Chocolate Mayonnaise Mug Cake


In a mug or small bowl, mix the following ingredients:

3 TB all-purpose flour

3 TB sugar

2 TB dark cocoa

1/4 tsp baking powder


3 TB mayonnaise

3 TB milk or milk substitute

1/8 tsp vanilla

Blend well and cook in the microwave for about 1 minute. Let it cool and enjoy!

NOTE: If you prefer regular cocoa, substitute 3 TB for the dark cocoa.

What about you? Do you make mug cakes? What's your favorite flavor?
