minute chocolate mug cake from food wishes

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sliced almonds
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder, or as needed
  • Add all ingredients to list
  1. Whisk egg, sugar, salt, 2 tablespoons cocoa powder, butter, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract together in a bowl until smooth. Stir coconut, almonds, and chocolate chips into the mixture; whisk in milk.
  2. Place flour into a small bowl or measuring cup and stir baking powder into flour with a mini whisk or fork. Pour flour mixture over batter and whisk just until you can’t see visible flour.
  3. Divide batter evenly between 2 coffee cups. Gently tap the cups on a work surface to eliminate air bubbles.
  4. Place cups into microwave oven, one at a time. Microwave each cup on High for 45 seconds. Nothing will happen in the first 30 seconds; in the last 10 to 15 seconds, batter will begin to rise in the cup. Cooked cake will collapse after microwaving. Remove from oven and let cool 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Lightly dust each serving with confectioners’ sugar and 1/8 teaspoon cocoa. Place each coffee cup onto a saucer and serve.
  • Cook’s Note:
  • To toast sliced almonds, place them into a dry skillet over medium heat and shake the skillet constantly until almonds are golden brown and fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from skillet and let cool.
