A Well Deserved Treat!

DIY work tends to be a little labor intensive (I suppose that's the idea) and after all that work sometimes a little reward (of a chocolate nature) is in order.

I give to you, dear reader, chocolate cake in a mug!

It is super simple recipe that involves one dish - your mug! What's even better is that you bake it in a microwave.The wonderful people over at Sorted Food came up with this idea and it really is brilliant. Here's the recipe:

2 tbs flour
2 tbs sugar
1 tbs cocoa powder
1 tsp instant coffee powder
1 small egg
1 tbs milk
handful of chocolate chips

Mix all the dry ingredients in your mug. Next mix the egg into the dry ingredients with a fork, and then drizzle in the milk and oil. Once everything is combined, add the chocolate chips pop the mug into the microwave for 2 1/2 minutes. Add some whipped cream or sprinkles and enjoy!

This recipe serves one but I make it all the time for my roommate and myself after a late night of studying!
