Two Minute Chocolate Cake

Some of you have probably heard of "mug cakes." For those that haven't, the idea is simple: Chuck a few ingredients in a coffee mug, into the microwave and a minute or so later you have a single serve cake. basically the best idea ever.

Tonight just seemed to call for chocolate so I created this healthier version of a chocolate mug cake. Tastes great and definitely satisfies that chocolate craving.

And seriously... it literally takes two minutes from start to finish.

Two Minute Chocolate Cake

Serves One

1 Tbsp + 2 tsp cocoa powder
3 Tbsp plain flour
1/8 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar or stevia
1/4 tsp baking powder
3 tsp apple sauce
3 Tbsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla essence

1. Mix the dry ingredients together in a small bowl, throughly.

2. Add the liquid ingredients and stir. Transfer the mixture to a ramekin, coffee cup, or some other kind of small dish.

3.  Microwave for 1 minute.

If you don't want to eat it straight out of the dish it was cooked in then spray the dish with a little oil before adding the cake mix.

  1. Sounds delicious, I'd drop the sugar in favor of more added apple sauce or a little sweetener as I'm not big on adding sugar to deserts. But even with the stats aren't too bad and it is a treat. What would go nicely is some banana icecream ;)
