Easy Chocolate Mug Cake

This is TO DIE FOR, devilishly easy, and should be outlawed. It’s a great recipe to make with items that you already have in your pantry and have a craving for chocolate cake. Since its a single serving you don’t have to worry about over indulging because it takes a bit of work to get it done. I LOVE this recipe.

DSC014991-2-3 Chocolate Microwave Mug Cake

What you need…

3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
2-3 tablespoons sugar (according to desired sweetness)
1 tablespoon flour
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil, such as canola
3 tablespoons egg white or plain Egg Whites in a carton
¼ teaspoon vanilla
optional: 1 teaspoon chocolate chips

How to Make it

1. Take a coffee-type microwavable safe mug and blend sugar, flour, and cocoa together.

2. Add milk, oil, egg white, and vanilla.

3. Stir for 2 minutes.

4. Sprinkle chocolate chips over top (Do NOT pour from bag like I did, instead of 1tsp of chocolate chips, I had 1/2 c the first time I made this!)

5. Put in microwave for 2 minutes.

6. After two minutes, lift up an edge with a spoon to make sure it’s not runny. If it is, place back in microwave for an additional 10 second intervals. Do not over cook! The texture will be moist, sticky, and appear undercooked. As long as you don’t have a puddle of batter, you’re good!

7. Enjoy or for additional greatness add some whipped cream or nuts!
