This mug cake recipe will take only 3-5 minutes for preparation and will taste like a combination of molten lava cake and a chocolate soufflé! With a moist cake outside and chocolate sauce inside, it’s hard to believe it’s made in the MICROWAVE!
Here’s how to make it :
You Will Need :
4 tbsp flour
4 tbsp granulated sugar
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (I used Hershey’s)
½ teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
3 tablespoons melted butter
3 tablespoons whole milk, at room temperature
1 small egg, at room temperature
1 cube/piece milk chocolate
In a microwave-safe mug, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt until well combined.
Add in the melted butter, milk and egg. Mix well to combine, making sure to mix in the flour mixture in the bottom.
Place the chocolate piece in the center of the mug. Do not push down; it will sink as it bakes.
Microwave on full power for 1 minute and half minute or until the cake rises to the top, the edges look set but the center looks ever-so-slighly wet and shiny but not raw, and sticks slightly to the finger when touched. Do not overbake to ensure the saucy, molten-y interior. If the center still looks raw then give microwave it for another 5 to 10 seconds.
A scoop of vanilla ice cream, topped with caramel sauce, on top on mug cake will add more love to it.
