Mug in a Microwave: Easy Chocolate Cake
What you need:
•4 Tbs. cake flour (for the record, we have used all purpose flour as a substitution and it works, however – the cake flour definitely makes it softer and more moist)
•4 Tbs. sugar
•2 Tbs. cocoa
•3 Tbs. milk
•3 Tbs. oil
•1 lg. coffee mug
•Topping of choice: homemade whipped cream, caramel sauce, fresh strawberries, cinnamon, powdered sugar, etc. (optional)
Really easy directions. Grease the inside of the mug, just like you would grease a cake pan. You don’t have to do this, and not every recipe tells you to do this, but we found that if we grease the inside of the mug, it slides out easier and looks prettier. If you don’t care how it looks, skip that part.
Toss the flour, the sugar and the cocoa into the mug.
Add the milk, oil and egg.
Microwave on high for 3 minutes!
