The other night, I was craving a treat and with nothing in the house that would satisfy my craving. I had seen on the Today show earlier, that you could make a chocolate cake in a mug and they said it was delicious! This was a perfect time to try it and you know what??? It was delicious!!!! This is an awesome idea when you want something little and you don’t want a whole cake in house because your afraid you will devour the whole thing!
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup self-rising flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup chocolate chips
- In a small bowl, whisk together the vegetable oil, milk, egg and vanilla. Then add, flour, sugar and cocoa and chocolate chips, then whisk to combine.
- You can pour the batter into 2 medium mugs or 1 large mug.
- Microwave on “high” for 90 seconds. Make sure to check to see if the cakes are puffed and bounces back by a light touch. If not, microwave for an additional 30 seconds. Serve!
- We lightly sprinkled powdered sugar on top.
Don’t have self-rising flour? You can substitute for all purpose flour, plus 1/4 teaspoon baking powder and a pinch of salt.
