That’s not a typo – it’s true. With three ingredients (plus a topping of your choice) you can have a rich chocolate cake – in only 1 minute! If you’ve ever had a chocolate craving but didn’t have the time or will to bake – this is for you. I topped mine with buttercream frosting (leftover from a cake I made) – but you can use chocolate chips, whipped cream, ice cream, hot fudge, caramel sauce…you get the idea!
The cake definitely needs a topping, otherwise it dries out rather quickly. But for 3 ingredients and 1 minute of your time – how can you go wrong?!
3 Ingredient Chocolate Cake In A Mug
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 – 2 tablespoons cocoa powder (I used 1 1/2 tablespoons – it depends on how chocolatey you like things!)
Break egg into a coffee mug and add remaining ingredients. Beat well – you want to make sure the cocoa is completely mixed it). Microwave for 50 – 60 seconds until just puffed. The cake will fall as you remove it from the microwave. Top immediately with desired toppings. Enjoy!
My kids really enjoyed this – they had a blast trying new flavors for the topping – one even melted peanut butter and marshmallows for the top!
Do you have a favorite dessert in a mug recipe? I’d love to hear from you!
