I believe I have mentioned before that I am a serious chocolate lover. Whenever I feel like snacking on something sneaky I get myself a chocolate bar.
Keeping with theme for this week’s Samsung blogger challenge, I felt it was best to make a chocolate mug cake.
I have been obsessing over Pinterest lately and I got the inspiration for this recipe from one of the pins.
The great thing about mug cakes is that they are pretty quick to make and dare I say foolproof. Another great this is that they sort of limit the portion size of the cake so one eats less cake which can be a good thing if you are trying to avoid too much sweet.
In a large mug add the margarine.
Melt the margarine in the microwave for 30 seconds.
Add the egg and beat it with a fork.
In goes the milk and vanilla essence.
Add the sugar.
Stir the mixture together.
Now to add the dry ingredients, the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
Mix the batter until smooth. From my research I learnt that the recipe yields two mug cakes.
Grease two small mugs with some melted margarine and divide the batter between the mugs.
You’ll see the cake rising while it’s in the microwave. How cool?
Once both mug cakes are done, serve.
Topped with sliced strawberries and some icing sugar.
Topped with vanilla ice cream and cocoa powder sprinkled over the ice cream.
The mug cakes were very spongy and airy. The chocolate flavour was mild.
So go ahead whip up a quick dessert and surprise your dinner date.
