  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a microwave-safe mug, whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt until well combined.
