If you love chocolate cake… Wait, what am I saying? Everyone loves chocolate cake!

In fact, I can only think of one thing that can top ordinary chocolate cake — chocolate cake made in less than a minute, in a mug!

Yes, you heard that right! It’s as simple as cake, and when all is said and done. you end up with a sweet dessert for one!

Kids and spouses will just have to forage for their own dessert, because this hot chocolate-inspired treat is all yours!

This recipe is called the Hot Chocolate Mug Cake, and it’s the brainchild of talented pro chef Gemma Stafford, of Gemma’s Bigger Bolder Baking.

She’s the same chef who brought us this quick and easy recipe for delicious, homemade churros.

Just throw your ingredients in a heat-safe mug, and pop it in the old microwave for 40-50 seconds — no muss, no fuss, just tasty chocolate cake! Her recipe is based on 1200W microwave.

Best of all, we are talking almost zero clean-up — scrub the mug and you’re done.
