Cake in a mug!

After dinner tonight, I made the simplest, most delicious dessert! Microwaved cake in a mug! Five minutes and you’ll be enjoying the chocolatey goodness! While many of my recipes are “good for you,”  I’m not even going to pretend that there is anything even marginally nutritious about this one. But oh my is it good!

What you will need:

1 coffee mug
4 Tbsp. cake flour (I used whole wheat)
4 Tbsp. sugar (I only used 2)
2 Tbsp. cocoa
1 egg
3 Tbsp. milk
3 Tbsp. oil (I only used 1)
Small splash of vanilla
3 Tbsp. chocolate chips, optional  (not really optional in my humble opinion!)


Add dry ingredients to mug, mix well with a fork.
Add egg, mix thoroughly.
Pour in milk and oil and vanilla, mix well.
Add chips.
Put mug in microwave and cook for three minutes.
Cake may rise over top of mug.
Tip on a plate and enjoy warm!
