Do you ever need chocolate cake, like right now? You can’t wait for the mixing, baking, frosting… then this recipe is for you. I had one of those evenings the other day, I wanted chocolate, but did not have time to bake and frost a cake.
Mug cakes are definitely not going to win any prizes when it comes to the prettiest cake, but the flavor is what counts anyway. And when you need chocolate cake the flavor is what is the most important factor.
This cake reminds me of a lava cake or otherwise known as a molten cake. The center was gooey and rich; it sure hits the spot for the chocolate craving. I can guarantee that once you eat this cake you will no longer have any chocolate cravings, you will be satisfied.
I added some Rolo candies to my cake, but you can add what you want. The recipe that I used suggested caramels, I think some mint patties would be a marvelous addition as well. But you can decide what you would like to add or maybe you just want chocolate which works as well. And a little whip cream can’t hurt either.
Chocolate Mug Cake (Source: Adapted from The Family Kitchen)
Ingredients (for 1 mug cake)
4 tablespoons all purpose flour
4 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg -beaten
3 tablespoon milk
1 tablespoon melted butter
3 Rolo candies
1. In a small bowl add flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. In another small bowl mix the egg, milk, and melted butter. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until blended.
2. Pour the mixture into a regular sized coffee mug that has been greased with a little butter. Drop the candies into the center one at a time.
3. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. If needed microwave for another 15 to 45 seconds. I like my center of the cake gooey so I did an additional 15 seconds. (It will also depend how many watts that you microwave has).
