Servings 2


  • 6 tbsp Wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp Cocoa powder
  • 5 tbsp Brown sugar
  • 6 tbsp Milk
  • 1 pinch Baking powder
  • ½ tsp Baking soda
  • 1-2 drops Red food color
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • cup Olive oil
  • White chocolate chips few


  • First preheat the oven at 180 deg C.
  • Then in a bowl sift wheat flour, cocoa powder, jaggery powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt and mix well.
  • Next in another mixing bowl take oil, milk and mix using a whisk till incorporated well.
  • Add the food color and give a nice stir once again.
  • Then add the dry ingredients to the bowl and mix to get a lumps free batter which must be of flowing consistency.
  • Add some white chocolate chips and gently give a stir.
  • I have used two ovenproof mugs here to make the red velvet mug cake. So divide the batter into the mugs evenly, but fill upto 3/4th.
  • Put few more white chocolate chips on top and bake for 12-15 minutes or little more 1-2 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
  • Take out from the oven and allow to cool completely.
  • Serve and enjoy the red velvet mug cake !


  • I have used white color chocolate chips. But it is optional. Any other toppings like nuts, sprinklers or even choco chunks can be used. Or also one can make the red velvet mug cake without adding these.
  • Instead of brown sugar, jaggery powder works well too here.
  • I have used mug here to bake the cake only for serving easily particularly in individual portions. One can use any molds or even muffin cases too.
  • If using the mugs, then make sure that the mug is completely ovenproof.
  • Always fill the batter upto 3/4th or little less filled in the mug. Because if the cake come out from the mug, then the mug cake will not look good.
  • I have used olive oil. Any other vegetable oil (neutral flavor) is also perfect.
