It just so happened that I was in the mood for chocolate (Ok, that applies to me about 99% percent of the time) and I was also in a non-baking mood. I have seen these cute little "mug cakes" floating around on Pinterest so I finally decided to try to whip one up for myself. (Yes, myself, as in I am not sharing).
Guys and Gals, you are going to want to keep this recipe. I am not kidding. This cake was delicious, chocolatey and EASY!
Try it yourself and let me know what you think!
PLEASE NOTE: ALL MICROWAVES VARY so please stand by and watch your cake. You should see your cake rise above the rim of your cup and then fall back down. You might want to put a paper towel underneath your mug to catch any spills. If your cake looks gooey after microwaving, pop it back in for 30 more seconds. Unless you like gooey. Since there are no eggs in this batter, you can leave it on the gooey side if you please.
Feel free to experiment with this recipe by adding your favorite ingredients. I have tried it with a dallop of peanut butter (YUM) and even caramel syrup! You can start with any other flavor of cake mix (just omit the cocoa powder) and add dry pudding mixes for extra flavoring (1TBS).
TIP: Don't throw the extra cake mix away! Keep it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for when you get another chocolate craving. You can even mix all of the dry ingredients together and keep them in ziploc baggies ready to go!
