Yesterday, I made an AMAZING chocolate cake…in a MUG…in the microwave! Yes – you read that right!
I’m not sure I had ever had anything like this before. AND I admit that I was (at first) a little…against the fact of making a cake in the microwave. I figured – why make a cake in a MUG when you could make a regular size cake and eat on it for days!?
Well, I’m “seeing the light” now, and I understand why people would want a “mug cake”. It’s easy, fast, individual sized, and so delicious!
The recipe I used came from “Lucky Peach”. I’ve included the recipe below – but here is their official posting, recipe and story… http://lky.ph/post/43087441437/mug-cake-for-lonelyhearts
Lucky Peach’s Two-Minute Chocolate Mug Cake
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons white all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons white granulated sugar
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tablespoons semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 small or medium coffee mug (microwave safe)
Add the egg, milk and vegetable oil to a small or medium coffee mug and whisk together. Next, add the white all-purpose flour, white granulated sugar, and unsweetened cocoa powder, and mix thoroughly until everything is combined. Finally, add in the chocolate chips, pure vanilla extract and salt and mix again.
Put your mug into a 1000-watt microwave for 2 minutes.
The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don’t be alarmed.
Allow to cool and tip out onto a plate if desired.
EAT! (This can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous.)
Note: Mine served one – me… 😉
