Chocolate Cake, In A Mug, Regular and Gluten Free



Last night after returning home from a night out with my husband, I decided to make this for me and my girls.  I had ordered a vegetarian meal, which was pretty light and the pita that came with it was of course made with regular flour so I could not eat that.  Honestly, I was still kinda hungry when I came home.  I thought this would be fun for the girls.  Portion is controlled which is perfect.  It really was perfect.  I like that I can give the girls a treat once in a while without making a whole batch of something.

As far the pics go- this was emergency chocolate cake in the evening.  Not chocolate cake, decorate it, plan it and shoot it from all angles with the camera kinda cake.  Get over it- their pics. When you taste it, it will taste way better than this picture looks.

I have to say this is very good chocolate cake.  And it was gluten free, well, the one I had- you would never know.  It was so very delicious. In case you are wondering- it's about 275 calories.


Emergency Chocolate Cake

2 tablespoon cake flour (or regular...)
2 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
a pinch of salt
2 tablespoon milk
2 tsp oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon mini chocolate chips or whatever your little heart desires

Put all dry ingredients in mug and stir with a fork until smooth. In a little bowl mix the milk, oil and vanilla and add to the dry mix in the mug.  Sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Microwave for 1 minute. Allow to cool a minute or two before eating.  Can you stand it?
