Two Minute Chocolate Mug Cake
I can’t decide if this recipe is the greatest or worst invention ever, but I have fallen in love with it. Chocolate cake, which requires only a mug, microwave, a few ingredients and two minutes. That’s it, dangerously wonderful!
I have tried many mug cake recipes, but this is the one I dig out of the stash again and again, when I want something guaranteed chocolaty and yummy. And in addition, this cake is almost impossible to ruin (unless you forget it in the microwave for too long and it becomes over baked!), it gives you good nutrients without fat, white flours or extra sugar. Yes, I’m not fooling with you, this chocolate delicacy will do good for you both physically and mentally!
For one serving you’ll need:
2 tbsp cocoa powder (the darker you use the more intense the result will be)
1 tbsp protein powder (chocolate flavored, I used White chocolate flavour from MyProtein)
2 tbsp plain yoghurt (fat free if desired)
1 tbsp mashed banana
1 egg white
1 tbsp stevia sugar (or stevia, honey, maple syrup)
a pinch of baking powder
a pinch of vanilla sugar or vanilla extract
some raspberries, blueberries or strawberries, banana pieces, nuts or nut butter (optional)
1. Mix all ingredients together and pour into a high coffee mug.
2. Add few berries or a spoonful of nut butter into the mix, if desired. I think the berries will bring much-needed freshness to the cake and if you are a friend of Snickers, you should try peanut butter, or salted nuts.
3. Microwave on “high” for 90 seconds. The cake will probably rise over the top of the mug, but don’t be alarmed (unless you didn’t use really low mug…). Check to see if the cake is puffed and bounce back after being lightly touched. If not, microwave for an additional 30 seconds. I like to eat mine a little “raw, not fully baked” because that way it’s wonderfully moist 😉 .
4. Serve immediately.
Enjoy as it is, or with berries, banana coins, nuts, nut butter, yogurt, ice cream or chocolate sauce! I had mine with some extra berries and peanut butter sauce, which was made of PB2 and some water (that’s basically powdered peanut butter).
