Rich chocolate cakes made in your microwave! That's right, these 1 minute chocolate mug cakes are so easy to whip up and even easier to "bake."
Yield: 3 mug cakes
  • 7 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 3½ tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder*
  • 7 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ c. + 2 tbsp. whole milk or buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp. melted coconut oil or vegetable oil
  • ¾ tsp. vanilla extract
  1. In a small mixing bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, sugars, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Gradually whisk in the egg, whole milk, oil and vanilla. Mix just until smooth. Pour into three large mugs, dividing evenly between the three.
  2. Place one mug in the microwave at a time, heat on high for 1 minute (depending on your microwave it could take 10 seconds more or less). Remove and top with a few chocolate chips, a dab of Nutella or a piece of chocolate. When the cakes are cool enough (about 5 minutes), enjoy!
*I always recommend using a quality cocoa powder!
-Make sure to use a mug that's at least 12 oz. in size, preferably more than 13.
-You can top these warm mug cakes with just about anything: ice cream, chocolate chips, a spoon full of Nutella, or even a bit of frosting!
