Chocolate Mug Cake

In recent months I've stumbled upon the idea of baking individualized desserts in the microwave. They've certainly been around for years, anything from a single chocolate chip cookie, to brownies, to cake. Seriously brilliant!

How many times do you crave just a tiny bit of dessert, but don't want to mess with making a whole pan? I make myself give them all away so I'm not tempted by it in the house. Or the girls want to make something on their own, but I really just don't feel like dealing with a big mess at the moment.  Enter in this cake...

A single serving of decadent chocolate cake, but wait. Not just any chocolate cake, one with a filling in the middle. A filling you can decide on, all on your own. Maybe it's a chocolate hazelnut spread, peanut butter or my personal favorite, biscoff cookie spread.

Yup, that's what I stuffed into mine. The middle is warm and gooey. It's not too sweet, just enough to satisfy any craving. And the kids can make these all on their own, of course with adult supervision. They loved measuring and stirring in the ingredients, and of course pushing the buttons on the microwave. These are a definitely a new favorite in our house!

Chocolate Mug Cake

2 tbsp flour
1 tbsp sugar
2 tsp cocoa powder
pinch of salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp milk
1 tbsp canola oil
1 tbsp biscoff cookie spread {peanut butter or Nutella}

In a regular sized coffee mug, stir together all dry ingredients well. Add in milk and oil and stir together to combine. Drop choice of filling right in the center of batter.

Microwave for 1 minute. Remove from microwave and enjoy!
