Espresso Your Inner Darkness Mug Cake

We LOVE halloween here at Urban Harvested. You get to watch horror movies, eat candy and have no obligation to see your family. Best holiday right?

This coffee chocolate Cake with Baileys cream, green vanilla buttercream and Monster Mash sprinkles from Sprinkle Pop is a great horror movie night snack. You can make all the components if you are feeling fancy or just the cake with a splash of Baileys over the top once cooked or even some ice-cream if you are after a quick snack.


5 min Cooking Time | Serves 1

For the coffee mug cake

  • 3 tbsp milk

  • 1 tbsp instant coffee

  • 4 tbsp self raising flour

  • 2 tbsp sugar

  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

For the green Bailey's buttercream

  • 1 tbsp butter, room temperature

  • 1 tsp Bailey Irish Cream Liqueur

  • 4 tbsp icing sugar mix

  • Dot of green food colour


For the coffee mug cake

  1. In a large mug, place the milk. Microwave was 10 seconds and then stir in the instant coffee. Add the remaining ingredients and mix.

  2. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, watching to make sure it doesn't spill over.

  3. Allow to cool for 1 minute, before serving.

For the green Bailey's buttercream

  1. In a small bowl using a fork, mix together the Baileys and butter. This works best if the butter is very soft, but not melted.

  2. Add the icing sugar and a little bit of green food colouring and continue whisking with the fork until incorporated.

  3. Place on the mug cake and add your sprinkles!
