That’s right….I said MUG.
Who doesn’t love a fast, easy, chocolaty treat? You just need a mug, a whisk, a microwave and the ingredients.
I’m not ashamed…..sometimes you just want a quick sweet something that makes your day brighter. So why not a mug cake?
Easy clean up makes it even better! Enjoy this yummy treat!!!
Molten Chocolate Lava Mug Cake.
- 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- pinch salt
- 2 tbsp cocoa
- 1/4 tbsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 tbsp brewed coffee hot or cold is fine
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 Ghirardelli square of baking chocolate broken into pieces
Mix all of the ingredients together except the Ghirardelli chocolate pieces in a separate bowl.
Pour into a lighty greased microwave safe mug.
Drop the broken chocolate pieces in the center of the batter.
Bake in the microwave for approximately 65 seconds.
Every microwave varies in heat and cooking times, so you will have to watch it closely and may have to test sample a couple of times before you know for sure the timing for your cakes. I microwave mine for 60 to 65 seconds each time and they come out perfeclty!
Garnish with ice cream or freshly whipped cream and dig in! SO delightful!!!! LOVE it!
One day I’ll share with you the recipe given to me by a Cruise Chef for his version of Chocolate Molten Lava Cake! I was lucky enough to be invited into the kitchen during a Chef’s Table meal and the chef personally taught me how to make it and gave me an autographed recipe for it when I left. So cool! I love that memory! In the meantime, enjoy this fast little jewel of a recipe! Yum
