Chocolate Mug Cake – this is the perfect little cake for those times when a sugar craving hits and you have no chocolate or lollies in the house. You’ve even stooped to scouring the bottom of your bag and come up bare!
Or, perhaps, you are wanting something a little different for dessert, yet you don’t feel like baking, let alone eating an entire cake.
Then this alternative might just what you are looking for. Petite, chocolate, spongey cake that’s not sickly sweet, yet mixed with ice-cream or a dollop of fresh cream and you’ve got yourself something special.
If you’ve either forgotten, or haven’t prepared anything for Valentine’s Day today, or you feel like indulging in a little pampering for one, then I’ve got you covered with this recipe. You only need a handful of ingredients, a mug or ramekin, 6-7 minutes and you’re done!
