We only had peanut butter M&M's in the house and that wasn't doing it for me.
I wanted cake. I am so pregnant.
Thankfully we did have these.
So I made this.
Not exactly decadent, but chocolate-y enough to satisfy.
Chocolate Cake in a Mug
2 tbsp. flour
1 1/2 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. of good cocoa powder (or sipping chocolate from TJ's if that's all you have)
1/2 tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt
2 tbsp. milk
1 tbsp. oil
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. chocolate chips
Stir all ingredients in a small mixing bowl, then pour into a mug. Batter will double in size so be sure the mug is big enough.
Heat in the microwave for 45-60 seconds. [50 was perfect for mine]
Top with ice cream, or whipped cream or whatever your heart desires. I've been a raspberry fiend this pregnancy, and it was perfection.
