Servings 1


  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cardamom
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 tablespoons water or any milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted and cooled butter neutral oil or coconut oil
  • 3 teaspoons tahini paste divided
  • For garnish- ice cream powdered sugar, more cardamom and, of course, sprinkles!


  • Get out a microwave-safe mug. I used a 12-oz mug which had enough room to mix without spilling the ingredients, but transferred to a smaller mug for nuking. It doesn't rise much, so as long as your mug holds your batter, you're good.
  • Add in your dry ingredients - flour, sugar, cooca powder, cardamom and salt and mix with a spoon until just combined.
  • Then add in the wet- water, butter, and 2 teaspoons tahini paste. Stir again just until combined. The batter should be thick.
  • Drizzle the last teaspoon of tahini on top and swirl to make it pretty.
  • Microwave for 60-90 seconds or until the top is set and the inside is still slightly gooey and moist. (Start with 60 seconds and see if you need more.)
  • Let cool for a minute and top with ice cream, sprinkles, a sprinkle of cardamom and powdered sugar, or whatever you like!
