An annotated chocolate mug cake recipe

November 21, 2021 4:34 PM

Original recipe - "The one" Chocolate Mug Cake

I don't really change too much, but this format is a little easier for me to read.

  1. Take out one mug, one 1/4 teaspoon, and one tablespoon.
  2. Scoop these ingredients into the mug and mix:
    • 2 tablespoons of flour
    • 1 tablespoon of sugar
    • 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
    • 1/8 teaspoon of salt (Just fill the 1/4 teaspoon about halfway)
      I like to scoop the dry ingredients in that exact order, to make sure I don't get my flour or sugar all cocoa powder-y. I mix using the 1/4 teaspoon.
  3. Pour these ingredients into the mug and mix:
    • 2 tablespoons of milk
    • 1 tablespoon of veggie oil
      Once again, I mix using the 1/4 teaspoon. After you mix a little, you'll want to tap the teaspoon against the side of the mug to let out any powder trapped inside. You want to make sure everything is mixed as well as possible.
  4. Microwave the mug for 1 minute.
  5. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
    Or don't, because this is a not-super-sweet mug cake, and the inclusion of vanilla ice cream is only going to make it feel even less sweet. But it does make the cake look more aesthetic.

The vanilla ice cream was so sweet, that it made the chocolate cake taste kind of bland in comparison
