Most Dangerous Cake Recipe in the World: Chocolate Mug Cake


I never thought making mug cake is this easy! And oh my god, it's really good!

This is my own version of the chocolate microwave mug cake. This chocolaty fudgy treat is truly decadent and great for nights when I need a yummy dessert that is ready in less than 10 minutes! Chocolate chips make this recipe even better.

So good, and so easy to make, if you're like me, you'll want to make it TWICE and eat both mugs one right after the other.

The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed! Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.

EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).
NOTE: For a healthier version, use 1 ¹/₂ tablespoons of plain unsweetened applesauce and use 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon water instead of the milk.
