During one particular snowstorm, when I not feeling the urge to eat an icy cold protein smoothie I played around in my kitchen while sipping coffee. I came up with this velvety chocolate mug cake.
Hot food in cold weather, and cold food in hot weather makes sense, duh!
Chocolate always calls to me when I get the urge to bake. An old standby recipe for a one-minute chocolate mug cake came to mind. For a while, I was on a kick one winter where I ate one every afternoon. That recipe, unfortunately (or fortunately for this post) was long forgotten. After a bit of experimentation, I came up with this decadent “One-Minute Chocolate Cake”
This cake tastes indulgent, yet it fits into a consistent nutrition lifestyle. It may even satisfy that old familiar chocolate/sweet craving. Move over oatmeal and eggs, chocolate mug cake is here for breakfast.
Bonus: Take this to work! The dry ingredients can be mixed ahead. At break time, add the kiss and liquid, cook in the microwave.
Note: For vegans, omit Half &Half and increase water to 1/2 cup.
