Ingredients

Instructions

The cake may be made in the mug itself, or mixed in a bowl and added to the mug for baking.

Whisk the liquids together. Add the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly with a small whisk or fork. Add the chocolate chips or lemon zest and stir again.

Place the mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes. Microwaves differ in power, so you may need to add 1 minute more; watch for the cake to rise as an indication it is done. The cake will fall a bit as it cools –if you can wait that long!

Serves: 1-2

  1. Tried this recipe last night & it was great! Had everything on-hand, was easy to make & cook. Wish there was a way not to cook in microwave, but that made it quick. Looking forward to trying lemon too.

    • Hi Kaarin, I’m sure this recipe could be made in an oven, but it would take much longer. I haven’t tried it yet, myself, but if you do, let me know how long it took to cook and at what temp. Glad you enjoyed it!

  2. I made this today for my son it was soooo good that I had to make one for myself, it is dangerous stuff if your trying hard to loss weight.?

    • Hi Ginger, I bet you could melt the butter and use it in place of the oil without a problem. Let me know if you try it before I do!
