Imagine diving into a rich, gooey chocolate cake just minutes after a craving strikes. Sounds like a dream? Well, it’s time to turn that dream into reality with the ultimate chocolate mug cake! Get ready to unleash the power of your microwave and transform a few simple ingredients into a delicious treat.
- 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 4 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- A pinch of salt
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 4 tablespoons water
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- Optional: chocolate chips
- In your favorite mug, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, and a pinch of salt. Stir these dry ingredients until they are well mixed.
- To the same mug, add the vegetable oil, water, and vanilla extract. Mix everything together until you have a smooth batter without lumps. If you like your cake extra chocolatey, stir in some chocolate chips or chunks at this stage.
- Place your mug in the microwave and cook on high for about 90 seconds. This timing is based on a 1000-watt microwave, so you might need to adjust it slightly depending on the power of your microwave. The cake should rise and be firm to the touch.
- Let the cake cool for a minute before digging in. The cake is best enjoyed warm.
