2 Minute Chocolate Mug Microwave Cake


Sometimes you just get a craving for something sweet.  If you have a few minutes and some simple baking ingredients, you can make yourself a warm and chocolatey cake right out of microwave.   This cake was fluffy and light.  I made it in a very large coffee mug... so we all grabbed a spoon and dug into it.  My son asked for us to poke holes in the cake and add some chocolate syrup... that was a good idea.  Next time we are going to add some caramel syrup.  Yes, it's all good. 

Dry Ingredients:
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
tiny pinch of salt

Wet Ingredients:
1/4 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet or milk)
1/4 cup milk (1 used 2%,)
1/4 cup apple sauce
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp chocolate powder- unsweetened
1 large egg
2-4 tsp of sugar (this is to taste.  I added two because I don't like overly sweet cake)

Fresh fruit (raspberries, strawberries etc...)
Chocolate syrup

Step 1:  in a separate microwave safe bowl mix chocolate morsels and milk.  I microwaved it for 1 minute on high and stirred it well to melt the chocolate.

Step 2:  Into the melted chocolate, add the applesauce, vanilla, chocolate powder, sugar and mix well.

Step 3:  Now add the Dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir well to combine.  Taste for sweetness.  Add more sugar if desired here.

Step 4: Gently beat in one large egg.

Step 5:  Spray a large microwave safe mug with cooking spray.  Pour batter into mug and set on a plate (in case it over flows).

Step 6:  Microwave on high for 2 minutes.  Sprinkle with sugar and garnish with fresh berries and/or chocolate syrup.  Enjoy.
