Decadent Chocolate Mug Cake

Have you tried any of the quick chocolate mug cakes that are super easy to make?  You mix all ingredients in a mug and after about 3 minutes in the microwave, you have a yummy single serving of moist chocolate cake!

I've tried several versions and after a few tweaks, this is by far my favorite.

In a large microwave safe mug, mix the following:

  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 large beaten egg
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream (milk can be used)
  • 3 drops vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 1 tablespoon Nutella Hazelnut Spread

Mix all ingredients thoroughly.  Microwave 2-1/2 to 3 minutes.  Remove carefully from microwave.  Cake will be super hot.  Let cool a few minutes and serve warm.  

You can eat directly from the mug, or turn it out to a pretty dessert plate and serve with a topping of whipped cream and chocolate syrup.  

These are great when you're the only chocoholic in the house and don't want to bake a full-size cake (at risk of solely eating the entire cake!)  or when you just want a chocolatey quick snack.

If you give this recipe a try, I'd love to hear how you like it!

Have you tried a chocolate mug cake recipe that you're really fond of?  Tried any other flavors?  Please share!
