Ok. I am finally sane. And do you know why?
I HAVE INTERNET!!
After a stressful month(!!!) without internet, I am finally connected. Part of the rest of this city, without needing to jump from coffee shop to library in order to get what little amount of free internet that I can.
First order of business: make a dessert!
And since I have only just recently moved, I don’t have too much organized. Which means baking supplies and ingredients are packed up in boxes and no where to be found.
But no worries. I am all about the mug cake. I mean, making a 4 ingredient mug cake, chocolate vanilla protein mug cake and a 4 ingredient chocolate mug cake basically in the span of one month, you can all see that I have an obsession.
But a portion sized obsession! A “make a dessert in less than 5 minutes” obsession. Which, in my opinion, is the best kind of obsession.
This Chocolate Chip Mug Cake is such a quick and easy dessert idea that is ready in under 5 minutes. Dessert for one when you are craving something sweet.
- 1 Tbsp salted butter
- 1 Tbsp granulates sugar
- 1 Tbsp brown sugar, packed
- 1/8 tsp vanilla bean paste
- pinch of salt
- 1 large egg yolk
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 Tbsp chocolate chips
In a microwave safe mug, melt the butter in the microwave (around 15 seconds).
Mix in the sugars, vanilla bean paste, salt and egg yolk until fully incorporated.
Mix in the flour until fully combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Microwave for 40 seconds, and see if it’s done. If not, microwave for additional 10 second intervals.
