Hot Chocolate Mug Cake


Ok, so sometimes you just need to have dessert, I totally get it. You don't want to make a dozen cookies, or a whole cake and mess up your entire kitchen. The mug cake is a perfect solution to this problem. It makes a single serving of cake and you can find a zillion variations of this cake on Pinterest or Google. 

Ingredients

  • 5 Tablespoons flour (all-purpose)
  • 5 Tablespoons instant hot chocolate mix
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • Dash of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil (or canola)
  • 4 1/2 Tablespoons water or milk (I used Almond milk)
How To Put It Together
  1. Using a large microwave safe mug, spray the inside with non-stick cooking spray. 
  2. Next, mix together the flour, hot chocolate mix, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Add in vanilla, vegetable oil, and water (or milk)
  4. Mix well until smooth using a fork. 
  5. Place in microwave and cook on high for 1.5-2 minutes, uncovered. 
  6. Check the center with toothpick to make sure it comes out clean, if it does its done!. Be sure not to over cook!
  7. Top with whatever you like - powdered sugar, frosting, chocolate chips, caramel or whipped cream! 
  8. Enjoy!
