Chocolate Mug Cake: Heaven in Two and a Half Minutes

Today I’m having a serious craving for chocolate covered shortbread cookies. Sadly, though, we don’t have butter. Sigh. But then I remembered, what about mug cake? It doesn’t require any butter, and it’s super delicious…. so I decided to stop by Ariel’s blog and check out the recipe that she posted a while ago… but I decided to change it up a bit.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup of flour
  • 3 tbs of sugar
  • 2 tbs of cocoa powder
  • Half a ripe banana, mashed
  • 3 tbs of milk
  • 3 tbs of oil
  • a pinch of salt
  • a little vanilla
  • 15 or so chocolate chips

Recipe:

Combine ingredients in a mug and stir for a minute or so, making sure all the ingredients are mixed – you don’t want to end up with lumps of flour (uh, I wouldn’t know this from personal experience. Nope.)  Next, microwave for about two and a half minutes – I have a 1150 watt microwave and it worked perfectly. Let cool for a few minutes and enjoy!

Until next time, Em :)
