5-Minute Chocolate Mug CakeThe kids made two batches of 5-Minute Chocolate Mug Cake after dinner tonight. - the first in a mug, which overflowed onto the microwave platter (fun to see, but a bit of clean-up) - the second in a cereal bowl, which did not overflow but wasn't as fun to watch. Both delicious. Thanks to Kristin for the recipe, which I have edited a little (to use whole wheat flour and a cereal bowl).
5-MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
4 tablespoons whole wheat flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
a small splash of vanilla extract
1 large cereal bowl or huge coffee mug
Add dry ingredients to bowl/mug, and mix well.
Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
Put your bowl/mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts (high).
The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!
Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
EAT! (this can serve 1-2).
Now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!
It took the kids more like 15 minutes, but they made two mugs of it, since it was for the four of us - I have yet to try cooking it myself. But it was delicious!
