I made this from an email recipe that was going around.
It’s called Minute Chocolate Mug Cake, but I like Emergency Chocolate Cake. 😉
I sprayed one coffee mug with cooking spray and it definitely came out better than the rest…less mess in the mug afterward. For best results, eat it while it’s warm. It gets a little too dense after that.
Minute Chocolate Mug Cake
- 1 Coffee Mug
- 4 tablespoons AP flour
- 4 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons baking cocoa
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 3 tablespoons oil
- 3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
- Small splash of vanilla
Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well .. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla, and mix again. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don’t be alarmed! Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
Serves 2…or 1, if you don’t mind a bit of a tummy ache!
