I was sitting on my couch watching Ellen when I found myself really wanting something sweet. Usually I ignore such cravings or shut them up with some frozen grapes. This was different, though. Ladies, it was one of those cravings and one of those times, and all I wanted was something warm and comforting. Maybe some chocolate in there somewhere, too.
I remembered seeing a single serving mug cake on Pinterest. Not five minutes later, I was standing in front of my microwave, unknowingly embarking on what I can only call a very dangerous journey.
Because, in less than two minutes I had a perfectly moist chocolate cake.
The opportunities for this are seemingly endless. Cake studded with chocolate or butterscotch chips. Red velvet. Funfetti. Carrot. See what I did? I've created a cake monster.
Chocolate Mug Cake
4 tbsp flour
3 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
3 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
3 1/2 tbsp milk
splash vanilla extract
3 1/2 tbsp oil
Combine all ingredients in a large coffee mug. Pour half into a container for later use. Microwave for 1-1 1/2 minutes. Add sprinkles, if desired.
And that's it, folks! That easy!
