Easy As Cake: 4-Ingredient Chocolate Microwave Mug Cake

Sometimes you just need some chocolate. And sometimes you just need some cake. And you always need simplicity and effectiveness. And that is  exactly what this 4-Ingredient Chocolate Microwave mug Cake is: a single-serving, easy-to-make cake packed with chocolate and cooked in the microwave. This cake only takes about two minutes to whip up, and is extremely light and fluffy! Because there is no added oil or butter, this cake is slightly healthier, but also slightly less moist. I would recommend topping this mug cake with frosting, ganache, or whipped cream to add back some richness.

Sorry I haven’t posted in so long. You know how life is and how busy it can be, but today I finally made some time to make a post! Yay!!! On another note… This summer I will be taking down this blog and be putting up a new blog (not a WordPress blog, a real one that I own!). So once I make the new website, stay tuned for the new blog name as well as the link to the new blog! (That’s something to look forward to!) And by the way, this cake is deliciously awesome. So, yum!

  1. Thanks for the recipes! The kumquat bread sounds interesting – you could use egg substitute instead of 1 and a half real eggs. I’ve done that before, and it’s easier. I might make it.
