5 Minute Mug Cake!

I saw this on “Live with Kelly” this morning and wanted to give it a try. I’ve heard about it before but never got around to trying it. It came out alright the first time, but not great. I tried it again and added Butterscotch kisses instead of the chocolate and drizzled some hot fudge and caramel for a bit more flavor (and to make it look more yummy)! I wouldn’t say that this is anywhere near as good an oven baked cake, but if your in the mood for a quick cake fix, this is the way to go.


4 Tbsp. flour
4 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. baking cocoa
1 egg
3 Tbsp Milk
3 Tbsp Veg. Oil
3 Tbsp. Chocolate chips (I used butterscotch)
Small Splash of Vanilla

In a mug add all of your dry ingredients and mix together. Add the egg and mix well. Add milk, oil, vanilla and chocolate or butterscotch chips and mix well. Put it in the microwave and heat on high for 3 minutes. That’s all you have to do. You can add a fudge dressing right in the mug or for a prettier presentation do what I did and place it on a plate.
