Ever crave something chocolatey when you are super hungry? Well, a chocolate mug cake is the right way to go. Let’s get started.
- 1/4 cup of All-Purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons of Powdered or Granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
- 1 Egg
- 2 tablespoons of Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- Chocolate Chips (Optional)
- 1/4 cup of Milk
- 1/4 teaspoon of Baking Powder
- 3-4 Strawberries
- Whipped Cream (Optional)
- Chocolate Syrup (Optional)
Step 1: Start by mixing flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda inside a microwave safe cup. (You can choose any size cup depending on how big you want your mug cake to be.)
Step 2: Pour some milk and stir. (You can use fat free milk or almond milk), (optional-you can use canola oil and water if you want)
Step 3: Add a few drops of vanilla extract
Step 4: Cook in the microwave for about 1 minute until the middle starts rising up
Step 5: Poke with a toothpick and see if it comes out clean.
Step 6: While letting it cool put some strawberries on the stove (on low flame) or microwave for 50 seconds. Add a little bit of sugar until sweet enough.
Step 7: Fill your chocolate mug cake with the strawberry filling. To fill it up with your surprise cut a hole inside the cake and fill it with strawberries. If you want you can put some whipped cream and chocolate syrup on top for fun. Enjoy!
