1-2-3 Chocolate Microwave Mug Cake instructions
- In a 1-1 1/2 cup microwave safe mug, blend cocoa, sugar, and flour together..
- Add milk, oil, egg white and vanilla. Stir vigorously for 2 minutes, (or until you've sung Happy Birthday 6 times!) making sure to get all ingredients incorporated. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top, if desired. Bake in microwave for 2 minutes. Check to make sure it is cooked on the bottom by lifting it a little with a spoon. If it is runny, cook 10 seconds more at a time until done. Do not overcook, as it will be rubbery. It puffs up and may overflow, but that is OK, it deflates somewhat as it cools..
- You want the texture to be moist and slightly undercooked..
- Let cool until just warm..
- Serve with whipped cream squirted fresh from the can..
I truly don't know the origins of this cake. I remember it being on the back of a Duncan Hines cake mix many years ago. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed. Pour both dry cake mixes into a large bowl and whisk well to completely combine the two mixes.
