Microwave Chocolate Mug Cake

Have you ever been sitting there minding your own business when all of a sudden you’re hit with a chocolate cake craving? Just me? I didn’t think so!  What would you say if I told you that you could be indulging in a fluffy and moist chocolate cake in less than eight minutes? (Yes, I actually timed how long it took me to measure, mix, and microwave this beauty).

But wait, there’s more!  Not only is this chocolate cake satisfying, easy and fast, it’s also a great way to eat your feelings on a night after the kids are in bed. The husband was super skeptical, but even he, the chocolate cake snob, was surprised how good it was.   Not too sweet, not too gooey, not dry and just the right amount of chocolate.  Eating this cake a la mode takes the experience to a whole new level.  Try this recipe when your chocolate cake craving hits and tell me what you think!
