Oh heavens… Chocolate Cake in a Mug?!

Yep. When surfing from one web site to the next today I came across a recipe for Chocolate Cake in a Mug that you bake in your microwave. You can thank Janell for that over at Sugar Crazed. 🙂

The recipe comes together so fast it is dangerous. I personally like it. I can just throw this together when I have a craving and not have a whole cake sitting around my kitchen. Plus, I added my own sweetener to keep it low on the glycemic index. Any ways, here’s the recipe…

Chocolate Mug Cake

2 tablespoons flour
*1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons cocoa powder (I mound them for a little more chocolate flavor)
A pinch of salt
**2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
***3/4 teaspoon oil

Mix all together and dump in mug. (I’m going to try mixing it right in the mug next time to see if that works.) Bake for 60 seconds in your microwave on high. If it doesn’t seem done (due to different microwaves and altitudes) only zap it in 15 sec. intervals after that. Mine came out moist and fluffy. Then I topped it with a little whipped cream (we always have that in the house). Nummy!!!

My Substitutions:
* 1 TB Agave Nectar
** 2 TB Almond Milk
*** 3/4 tsp coconut oil

Have a wonderful day!
