Today's a two-fer! That's right, I'm posting TWO recipes today! You should feel special.
If you have an email address, then you've probably gotten the email about the 5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake. I've gotten it several times and every single time I read it, it makes me want to try it. I have no idea why I haven't, but I thought today should be the day. The recipe is simple enough; the ingredient breakdown is here:
- 3 Tbsp flour
- 3 Tbsp sugar
- 3 Tbsp cocoa
- 1 egg
- 3 Tbsp milk
- 3 Tbsp oil
- 3 Tbsp chocolate chips (optional)
- Splash of vanilla extract
- 1 large coffee mug
I put all the ingredients in a 1-cup Pyrex measuring cup just in case my coffee mugs weren't big enough.
I mixed it all together well with a spoon:
Then, I put it in the microwave:
It came out looking like this:
And tasted like this:
Oh wait. You can't taste it. Too bad for you!
I kid, I kid. Actually, the cake turns out pretty heavy, but fairly moist. It tastes like chocolate cake, but it really needed something.
Like yummy chocolate icing.
But there's no microwave mug recipe for that, is there?
All in all, I probably wouldn't make this to satisfy a chocolate craving, but it was a fun experiment regardless!
