Molten Chocolate Mug Cake
  • 1 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 4 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp milk
  • 1 Tbsp brewed coffee (if you do not want to use coffee, you can substitute this with another Tbsp of milk)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 chocolate truffles, like Lindt milk chocolate truffles
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • Whipped Cream
  • Ice Cream
  • Chocolate Shavings
  • Sprinkles
  • Fruit
  1. In a regular-sized mug, mix melted butter and brown sugar together.
  2. Add in flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, milk, and vanilla extract. Whisk together.
  3. Add in coffee, and whisk.
  4. Press truffles into the center of the mug, making sure they are completely submerged in the batter.
  5. Top with water (do not mix--the water provides a steam bath that not only adds extra moisture to the cake, but also gives the cake a nice texture).
  6. Cook in the microwave for 60-90 seconds. Each microwave is different, so keep an eye on the cake to make sure it does not over bake. The center should look slightly gooey, while the outsides of the cake should 'spring' back when touched.
  7. Top with whipped cream, ice cream, extra chocolate, or whatever toppings you have on hand.
  8. Enjoy!
