Cooking Made Easy: Microwave Mug Cake

chocolate microwave mug cake quick recipe television snack

You know these lazy Friday evenings where you're just lying on the sofa, watching TV and craving something sweet? Obviously if that's the scenery you're too lazy to leave the house and buy something and you're waaaay to lazy to bake something. So yesterday evening that was all the case so the mug cake I had heard of came to my mind. I had never tried one because I'm always sceptical when it comes to microwave food but I decided to give it a try. The best recipe I could find was this one on Running to the Kitchen. For you I converted it into a recipe for 2 because other recipes said that 1 egg is too much for just one mug cake (and it's rather hard to divide an egg in two!).

Ingredients for 2 mugs: 
6 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoon Nutella (or something similar)
2 tablespoon sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoon unsweetened applesauce
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
6 tablespoons milk

1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
2. Put the dough into two large mugs (not more than half of one mug should be filled!)
 3. Cook for 3 minutes at 1000w.
4. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream and enjoy!

Let me tell you that this cake is super chunky (even though it was amazingly fluffy) so one mug is definitely enough! Also I found they weren't quite sweet and chocolaty enough. Maybe that was because I only took half of the Nutella but if you are a major sweettooth you may want to add some chocolate chips or anything that makes this recipe even more decadently yummy! For those who have tried mug cake: please share your experiences.
