Chef’s Chocolate Mug Cake Tips
If you don’t have a big appetite, then this recipe is good as a small sweet snack between two persons.
When adding chocolate it’s worth noting that cacao powder has a milder taste compared to cocoa. Either is fine to use, but cocoa gives this cake more depth of flavour.
It tastes like the real deal chocolate cake, especially topped with yogurt. In fact, topping it with yogurt or even cream provides a yummy truffle trifle experience. Try it with homemade Vanilla Coconut Yogurt.
Cooking Your Mug Cake
This recipe is great because you don’t need a bunch of tools to make this cake. A Pyrex jug and a fork is all you need to mix it together. Pop the jug straight into the microwave as is or divide it into 2 mugs.
This cake was developed solely for the microwave not to the oven. It’s best not to over microwave it because it’ll diminish the fluffiness making it quite dry…1 minutes 30 seconds is the best timing. If microwaving isn’t your thing, then pop it into the oven for approximately 10 minutes on 180c.
