Topic tags/keywords: recipes cake in a mug

yes, its really good, I have done it several times and its always fantastic….

1 large coffee mug

4 tbsp flour
4 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
1 egg
3 tbsp milk
3 tbsp vegetable oil
small splash of vanilla
3 tbsp chocolate chips

Spray mug with cooking spray, then mix together all the ingredients with a fork in the mug, in the order given: first mix all dry ingredients, add egg and mix, then milk, oil and vanilla and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips.

Place mug in microwave, and cook on high for 3 minutes (more or less depending on your microwave). The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don’t be alarmed. It will not overflow. Allow to cool a little then eat it with a spoon directly from the mug, or tip out onto a plate.
Dont forget the whipped cream…..

Its really good….i did this in 6 mugs for conpany and they found it delicious….for my celiac friend I even used rice flour and she adored it….

In a big mug it does’nt grow high, in a smaller mug it raises high, here are my pictures :

I mix the dry and wet ingredients in small seperate bowls instead of in the actual mug, it is easier.

then mix everything together with a fork in the mug, gently firts then faster to mix well

here it is after 5 minutes in my microwave, depending how strong yours is it might only take 3 or 4….it gets springy when ready.

here it is out of the mug, its nice, dense and deliciously chocolaty, use quality chocolate…

i cut mine in half, a whole one is too much, so its perfect for 2 people…

where did it go???????????

I’ve seen that recipe before. Wanted to try it, but have been afraid it might be too easy, and thus too frequent an indulgence, lol.

You did it again! Mario, how can you keep doing this to me? Now I can’t rest until I try your ‘cake in a mug’. I just keep getting bigger and bigger…............and it’s your fault. 8^) This looks so-o good!

What’s with all those delicious crumbs!!!??? You mean you didn’t lick the plate -tisk, tisk- :) Looks great, I wonder if it can be done in a water bath in the oven…I don’t have a microwave and that cake looks great.

Cynthia, GranT is right, it takes years and years of practice. I’d hate to think what size I might be without the gardening!! 8^O
