Easy Peasy Little Treat!

Happy Friday everyone! Hello to all my new readers out there! I couldn't be more pleased that the weekend is here. It's Labor Day Weekend which means saying goodbye to summer and long days at the pool. Fall is my absolute favorite season (maybe I'm bias)! I love cozy sweaters, boots, and camping. This quick little treat is perfect when your relaxing by the fire or cozy under the covers! It takes about five minutes to make, and it's pretty good if you ask me. It is no gourmet chocolate cake, but it will hit your sweet tooth, and fulfill your chocolate craving!

What You'll Need:
4 tbs Flour
4 tbs Sugar
2 tbs Cocoa Powder
1/8 tsp Baking Powder
A Pinch of Salt
1 Egg
3 tbs Milk
3 tbs Oil
2-3 drops of vanilla extract

Grease your mug (please don't forget, it's terrible to try and get out if you don't)! Add all of your dry ingredients together and give them a good stir.

Whisk together your egg and milk in a small bowl, and add it to your dry ingredients.
Now it's time for oil and vanilla, put those in there!
Mix it all together, make sure you get down in there so all of the dry stuff is moist. You don't want a big old pocket of flour in there!
Just showing off my mug because it's my favorite! I love jelly fish!

Microwave your mug cake for two and a half to three minutes and you're cake is ready to go. Be careful, it might be pretty hot! Top with a little dusting of powdered sugar and some chocolate chips and enjoy!

  7. I used to make mug cakes when I was on this crazy milkshake diet once. I'd microwave the milkshake sachets into little cakes to make them tastier. This looks MUCH nicer :)
