This is a super simple recipe and takes about five minutes to make from start to finish. The whole thing can be made directly in the coffee mug so there is very little clean up. The size is perfect for one person or you can share it if you are feeling nice. This is also a fun cooking recipe for children just make sure they are careful with the mug since it will be hot when they pull it out of the microwave.
Things You’ll Need:
- 4 TBSP sugar
- 4 TBSP flour
- 2 TBSP cocoa
- 1 egg
- 3 TBSP oil
- 3 TBSP milk
- 3 TBSP chocolate chips (optional)
- 2 drops vanilla extract
- 1 large microwave safe coffee mug
To make Coffee Mug Cake start with an empty and clean coffee mug and add the sugar, flour and cocoa then stir to mix well.
Next you will need to add the egg to the coffee mug and mix well.
Pour in the oil and milk and mix well again to make the batter for the coffee mug cake.
Now you will need to add the Chocolate Chips and vanilla extract and stir until well mixed.
Place the mug in the microwave and heat for three minutes. The cake will expand and will probably rise over the edge of the coffee mug.
Allow the Coffee Mug Cake to cool for a few minutes so you don’t burn yourself.
Now you can either eat the Coffee Mug Cake from the Coffee Mug or pour it onto a plate and serve with a spoonful of vanilla ice cream.
Total cook and prep time is about five minutes! Taste is wonderful! This is great for an afternoon pick me up at work when everything seems to be going wrong since chocolate cures everything!
