Picture this... it's a Friday night, you're staying in after a long, busy week and you've opened and closed the fridge door at least 5 times in hope that some chocolate will magically appear. All you want is a couple of squares as you chill on the couch with your glass of red. It's your moment to pause and connect back in with yourself after a hectic week and let's face it - you deserve a little treat. (And I'm all about the 'everything in moderation' non-diet!)
We've all been there - I sure have and I've even resorted to eating bitter dark cooking chocolate when I was desperate, so there's absolutely no judging here.
With this recipe, you can now give your fridge door a bit of a break! When you're craving a sweet treat but you've got nothing in your house - just turn to this super quick and simple recipe for a fast chocolate microwave mug cake. You can be diving in to a warm chocolately cup of goodness in no time at all.
And the best part? This recipe is super adaptable! No cocoa? Well make yourself a vanilla cake and throw in some choc chips - or do them both and have a double choc party for 1. You can also add in Nutella, almond or peanut butter, sultanas or chopped nuts if you feel like mixing it up a little. This recipe suits the size of the MWD tumblers so if you haven't wrapped your hands around one of these yet, you can shop them here. It's not just tea + coffee that tastes better in a handmade cup.
NOTE: I wouldn't try this in a smaller cup because if I'm completely honest, when I was testing and adjusting this recipe - there were quite a few disasters and mug cake volcanoes. And no one wants to clean up that mess! OK less talking more doing... and eating.
