Chocolate Cake In A Mug
Be sure that any mug you use for making a chocolate cake in is microwave safe. If not the cake in the mug may not turn out right or it may not cook at all. You can find microwave safe coffee mugs for sale every where.
If your not sure if a coffee mug is microwave safe put water in the mug or cup and heat it for 1 minute in the microwave. If the water boils or gets real hot but the cup or mug is still relatively cool then it is microwave safe. If the cup is real hot don't use it.
Instructions For Making A Chocolate Cake In A Mug
The first time I ever saw someone make the chocolate cake in a coffee mug it amazed me. I couldn't believe how well it worked. I've worked with finding a way to make it work even better and have a rich chocolate flavor that is so good it will have you up making this cake at 4 A.M. Just be sure to have some vanilla ice cream on hand. Because it is the vanilla ice cream that makes this cake so delicious and yummy. You can also add chocolate syrup, whip topping and maraschino cherries.
Be Sure To Use A Blender To Mix Your Cake Ingredients Up In.
I found that if I used a blender to mix my ingredients up in that they cakes came out perfect every time and the cake is lighter and fluffier when you use your blender to mix up the ingredients.
So lets get started and make a chocolate cake in a large coffee mug. I will tell you that you'll need a large coffee cup to make this cake in. Soup mugs make the perfect mug to cook this cake in. And I will tell you that the cake is going to come up and out of the coffee cup as it cooks. When the chocolate cake in a mug is done the cake will be sticking up out of the coffee mug.
Prepare Your Coffee Mug By Spraying The Inside With Vegetable Cooking Spray.
You want spray the inside of your coffee mug with a good quality vegetable cooking spray. This will make it easy to get the cake out of the mug and it will make clean up easier later. I always use Pam because I think it is the best product to use. Remember you get what you pay for. So I always use the best ingredients possible especially for baking.
You want to get started by mixing all of the above ingredients up in your blender and blend them until they are completely mixed up together. After you have sprayed your coffee mug and prepared it pour the blended ingredients into the coffee mug. Use a small plastic spatula to be sure to get all the ingredients out of the blender and into the coffee mug.
Now Your Ready To Cook Your Chocolate Cake In A Mug.
Now put a napkin or paper towel onto a microwave safe saucer and set your coffee mug containing the blended cake on the paper towel or napkin and microwave for three minutes. If your microwave has a high setting put it on high. After three minutes you will have a baked chocolate cake like in the above photo. With a serving of vanilla ice cream you have one of the best chocolate cakes you will ever eat. I'm setting here right now eating one with a cup of coffee and its oh so wonderful. Even with out the vanilla ice cream the cake is moist, chewy and oh so delicious. I worked at one Florida Cafe where we sold a hundred or more of these chocolate mug cakes in a night.
How To Kick This Cake Up A Notch Or Two.
There we served it with vanilla ice cream and we topped that with cool whip topping and we put a ladle of chocolate syrup over that and a maraschino cherry on top. Let me tell you made that way the cake is almost sinful. And I think that's why some people call this cake the world's most dangerous chocolate cake.
