"In a mug..." Chocolate Snack Cake

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

I have been interested in mug recipes for some time now. And they don't have to be microwave cooked, for that matter. But any small serving or serving for one recipe interests me greatly. Especially a scratch-made, all chocolate dessert I can make for my dear husband. He is a bonafide chocolate lover! You see, in his childhood home, dessert really meant chocolate!

The reason for my interest in these little jewels is our change of family size (mostly) and unfortunately for me, I can no longer eat chocolate. The foods we enjoy will change for everyone, someday. You will realize that what you ate for all of your days before, does not agree with you now. At some point, you decide to experience new foods for reasons of interest or increased health. But my dear one still loves his chocolate!

This is a fudgy cake, needs no frosting, but it does have chocolate chips inside as well as being very chocolatey. And my husband loved it. I hope you give it a try.

By the way, you can't tell it is whole wheat flour, so no sense saying anything...and it goes without saying that a spoonful of ice cream or a squirt of real whipped cream topping only serves to make it even more enjoyable!

inspired by: Chocolate Covered Kate

2 T sugar
2 T cocoa
1/8 t salt
1/4 t baking powder
3 T whole wheat flour
2 T milk
1 T oil
1/2 t vanilla
2 - 3  T chocolate chips

Combine the cocoa and sugar, stir to remove any lumps from the cocoa. Add remaining dry ingredients, stir well to combine.

Add the milk and oil, stir well to combine.

Top with the chocolate chips and microwave 45-55 seconds until testing done. Test at the 45-second mark and only continue cooking if necessary.

Let cool a moment, top with a bit of the cream previously mentioned, and dig in.....

  1. I like this idea! Sometimes you just want a little something but you don't want to take the time to bake and you definitely don't want to be stuck with an entire cake.

    1. They are great for small families or for defined tastes. I am on the prowl for more "mug recipes" for us both to enjoy. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I bet this is good. I think I will make it for my little granddaughter; she loves her chocolate. Better yet, I'll teach her to make it for herself. Thank you, Rocquie

    1. I think mug recipes like this one are perfect to get kids cooking! Thanks for stopping by.
