Chocolate Fondant Mug Cake

Chocolate Fondant Mug Cake

One of my favourite things to make is a chocolate fondant, but when you’re feeling low you don’t want to spend time baking – good thing this mug cake adaption only takes 5 minutes! For an added treat I’ve added dried cranberries and chocolate chips to this one, but you could leave them out or add something completely different if you’d like!


Makes 1 large mug cake

Time: 5 minutes


  • 50g butter
  • 75g dark chocolate
  • 60g light brown sugar
  • 50g plain flour
  • 1 egg

Optional extras:

  • 25g milk chocolate chips
  • 25g dried cranberries
  • (You could also try nuts, other dried fruit, fresh berries and sweets)


  1. Put the butter and chocolate into a bowl or mug and microwave for 20 seconds. Stir to combine the butter and chocolate as much as possible. If the chocolate hasn’t melted enough put it back into the microwave for another 20 seconds and then stir again until smooth.
  2. Add the sugar, flour, egg and any optional fillings you like. Mix until combined.
  3. Pour the mixture into a mug and microwave for 2 ½ minutes.
  4. Enjoy with fresh cream and berries!
