Microwave Mug Cake Recipe!


I've never made a cake from scratch to cook in the microwave but I'm learning there is a first time for everything!

First off you see my husband is a huge chocaholic and well I'm the total opposite. They do say opposites attract. I came across a few recipes for 2 minute microwave cakes and thought what the hay - I'll try it for my love.

3 tbsp milk

Heat in microwave mug for 2 and a half minutes and look what you will have!!!
 

I made two simply because I knew the kids would want to try it.
Lexi loved it - She takes after her Daddy when it comes to chocolate.

This was fast and easy and ready in a matter of minutes! It had a great taste and the texture was kinda like a brownie. My husband added a little ice cream and chocolate syrup to his and loved it a lot!
