Weekend Recipe: Coffee Mug Chocolate Cake

This is Cook's Country's dessert in a cup! You'll want to mix all the ingredients together in a separate bowl, for better taste and texture, but then it's straight into the microwave, for a chocolate dessert that's much, much easier than pie.

Serves 2
4 tbsp butter
1 oz dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
2 1/2-oz chunks of milk or dark chocolate

In a small bowl, melt together butter and dark chocolate until smooth. Stir in cocoa powder and vanilla extract.

In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar and eggs. Beat in chocolate mixture until smooth.

Sift in the flour, baking powder and salt and whisk until well combined.

Divide batter evenly into two 11-oz coffee mugs.

Microwave on 50% power for 45 seconds. Stir, then microwave on 50% power for an additional 45 seconds. Insert one chunk of milk chocolate into each cake, then microwave on 50% power for 35-45 seconds, or until the cake looks set and slightly dry on top.

Allow to cool for 1 minute, then serve.
