I hope you all had a wonderful NYE. The hubbs and I spent it inside this year with the girls. We watched a few movies had some cold stone (mmm) and quite frankly it felt like any other night haha. But it was nice to be in and Vayda sure did love yelling happy new year from the balcony haha.
Do you ever get a late night sweet tooth? Last night I wanted something sweet SO bad. Which leads me to my Tuesday Treat. Have you ever made chocolate cake in a mug?! You must if you haven't, if you have and have different versions, please share! The recipe I followed is from 2 Stews, picture from 2 stews as well. Enjoy!!!
1-2-3 Chocolate Microwave Mug Cake
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
2-3 tablespoons sugar (according to desired sweetness)
1 tablespoon flour
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil, such as canola
3 tablespoons egg white or plain Egg Whites in a carton
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon chocolate chips
*As a variation, substitute almond extract for the vanilla.
Also, you can change the chocolate chips to any flavor chips you'd like.
In a 1-1 1/2 cup microwave safe mug, blend cocoa, sugar, and flour together. Add milk, oil, egg
white and vanilla. Stir vigorously for 2 minutes, (or until you've sung Happy Birthday 6 times!)
making sure to get all ingredients incorporated. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top, if desired. Bake
in microwave for 2 minutes. Check to make sure it is cooked on the bottom by lifting it a little with
a spoon. If it is runny, cook 10 seconds more at a time until done. Do not overcook, as it will be
rubbery. It puffs up and may overflow, but that is OK, it deflates somewhat as it cools. You want
the texture to be moist and slightly undercooked. Let cool until just warm and serve with whipped
cream squirted fresh from the can.
