Chocolate Cake is pretty much the best thing out there, am I right??!
Well, combine chocolate cake and Toucan Mugs and Yellow Striped Mugs and adorably printed rolling pins and it’s a match made in heaven!
When I saw the new Whim by Martha Stewart Collection available at Macy’s, my heart skipped a few beats and I knew I had to combine chocolate and the Whim line right away! Today I am sharing a delicious Chocolate Cake in a Mug!
Chocolate Cake in a Mug
Chocolate cake in a mug is the best thing since sliced bread because clean up is so minimal and you aren’t temped to eat an entire cake on a Friday night while watching Netflix. You only eat a mug’s worth of cake, which is the perfect amount! So, it is really a win win for everyone.
The Chocolate cake in a mug recipe I use only takes 5 minutes to whip up and as you can see below, it all happens in a mug. It’s magical.
- 1/4 cup All-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons Unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 teaspoon Baking powder
- 3 tablespoons Granulated sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon Salt
- 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp. Milk
- 2 tablespoons Vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon Nutella
- Whisk together dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl.
- Whisk in the milk and vegetable oil until all ingredients are combined and batter has no clumps.
- Pour the mixed batter into a microwave-safe mug.
- Add the Nutella into the middle of the batter.
- Place a paper plate in the microwave and set your mug on this to catch any overspill.
- Microwave the mug cake for 70 seconds on high.
- Carefully remove from microwave, allow to cool and enjoy.
- Make sure to allow for enough room in your mug for the cake to rise.
