Chocolate Cake in a Mug by Ree


DSC_3836Have you ever had such a wicked craving for chocolate cake that you’ll simply die if you don’t get a piece within five minutes?

Well, I have. Many, many times.

And that’s where this little mug treat comes in! If you haven’t yet discovered the Pinterest-friendly joy of whipping up a 90-second chocolate cake in a mug…well, your life is about to change.

(Pssst. This is a rich little cup of wonder! Split it with a friend or loved one.)

DSC_3786Throw 3 tablespoons of flour into a microwave-safe mug…

DSC_3788Along with 3 tablespoons sugar…

DSC_37902 tablespoons cocoa powder (not shown) and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder.

Oh! And a teeny tiny pinch of salt.

DSC_3791Use a fork to stir it all together.

DSC_3815Add 3 tablespoons of milk and 3 tablespoons vegetable oil…

DSC_3818Along with a splash of vanilla…

DSC_3820And stir it…

DSC_3823Until it all comes together and you want to eat the batter.

DSC_3824This is optional, but delicious! Stir in 3 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips.

DSC_3827Then pop it in the microwave and nuke it for 90 seconds!

DSC_3829It definitely doesn’t look fancy. But oh, is it good!

DSC_3832I took the liberty of whipping a little cream and plopping on a dollop.

DSC_3833And I added sprinkles, too!

DSC_3837And check it out.
