There are times when I want to satisfy my sweet tooth with chocolate cake but I don’t want to take the time to bake a whole cake. Or better yet there are days when I would rather not use the oven because it tends to heat up the house. Lucky with just some items from my kitchen, I can make my own personal chocolate mug cake in just a few minutes in my microwave.
Yes, you can make a chocolate cake in your mug in the microwave and it will be ready in just a few minutes. It won’t be like a cake you buy from a bakery but it can definitely be a treat for when you are craving cake and don’t have time to bake!
I like my plain but you can add frosting, whip cream, peanut butter or whatever else you think would go great with it.
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 TBS unsweetened Cocoa
- 3 TBS milk
- 3 TBS vegetable oil
- 1/4 TSP vanilla extract
- Combine all ingredients in a large coffee cup or mug and stir well.
- Place in microwave and cook for 3 minutes on high.
- Let cool for 2 minutes.
Sounds easy right? I think it is the perfect midnight snack for those craving some chocolate! If you happen to have some frosting be sure to add some to the top.
