When you are in a hurry for a decadent dessert, who doesn’t like chocolate? Here’s a recipe that is perfect to make and eat with the kids! Warning – this serving was so big, one mug (an oversized mug!) would have been plenty for two people!
- 4 Tablespoons flour
- 4 Tablespoons sugar
- 2 Tablespoons cocoa
- 1 egg
- 3 Tablespoons milk
- 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
- 3 Tablespoons chocolate chips, optional (really, if you are making cake, GO FOR IT!) 😉
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Add the dry ingredients to a large, microwave-safe coffee mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly, being sure to scrape the sides and the bottom well to incorporate the mixture. Add the chocolate chips and vanilla and mix.
Place mug in microwave and cook for 3 minutes. The cake will rise and will peek out over the top of the mug, so don’t worry and think that it will explode!
Allow to cool, add some vanilla ice cream (why not!?!) and enjoy! So good you don’t need frosting!
Thank you so much to my assistants in today’s video, Dylan and Kingston! They were a big help AND they did a great job!
