5 Minute Mug Cake recipe

Tonight I posted my daily picture of my much needed, post-workout 5 Minute Mug Cake. I was a little shocked at how many people have never heard of this life-saving lil recipe. Fear not kids, Andrea will clue you in. No, this is not a gourmet dessert by any stretch of the imagination, but when you check out the pantry and there's not a cookie or chocolate morsel to be found, this will do in a pinch.

  • 4 Tbsp. flour
  • 4 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbsp. milk
  • 3 Tbsp. oil
  • 3 Tbsp. chocolate chips (or just dump)
  • Small splash vanilla extract
  • 1 large coffee mug

Add dry ingredients to mug and mix well. Add egg and mix thoroughly. Add milk and oil and mix again. Add chocolate chips, vanilla extract and mix one last time.

Nuke in microwave for 3 minutes at 1000 watts. Allow to cool before eating.
