Dangerously Simple Mug Cake

22 Mar

I saw this cake on Food Network and was curious to see if it actually came out the taste and texture of cake. Plus it only takes about 2 minutes to throw together and 2 minutes in the microwave…..this is dangerous because at any point of the day I know cake is only 4 minutes away.

It tasted ok for cake thrown in a mug and microwaved…..I would probably add a little more sugar next time. This is perfect for kids when you want to give them a sweet snack without actually having to make a whole cake.


1/4 cup flour

 5 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

1 egg

3 tablespoons milk

 3 tablespoons vegetable oil

dash of vanilla extract and salt

Whisk all ingredients together in a large mug until smooth. Microwave until puffed, about 2 minutes.
