Chocolate chip mug cake

First of all, HAPPY VALENTINES DAY! Ok now back to the post. 🙂 I love chocolate chip cookies, especially crispy! I made this Chocolate Chip Mug Cake and it was pretty good! If you have them, I would use milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet though if you like it sweet.craftsandcupcakesmug cake

Here is the recipe

I found this recipe at: http://kirbiecravings.com/2015/09/chocolate-chip-mug-cake.html

Chocolate Chip Mug Cake

Ingredients

  • 4 Tbsp. flour
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 3 Tbsp. milk
  • 1/8 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 2 Tbsp. semi sweet chocolate chips ( or you can use milk chocolate)

Directions

  1. Put all ingredients except chocolate chips in mug. This is a small mug cake so you will want to use an 8 oz. mug. Mix with a small whisk until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Mix in half of the chocolate chips, sprinkle the other half on top.
  2. Put in microwave. The recipe said to cook for a minute but I thought 50 seconds worked better.

Enjoy!
