Before you begin this delectable recipe, it’s important that you have all of the necessary ingredients. These include not only the chocolate mugs and a good eight to ten inches of plain ganache, which you can bake in an oven if desired.

Other optional ingredients can be honey, almond extract, vanilla extracts or unsweetened chocolate.

Once you have gathered your pantry ingredients and your chocolate mug cake recipe, you are ready to begin. First, you will need to preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In order to do so, spray a non-stick baking sheet with either cooking spray or low-fat cooking spray. Line it up with the bottom tray of your oven. Now, pre-heat your oven again, and set the timer for about one hour.

Remove The Baking Sheet

For the chocolate mug cake recipe, this recipe will require an electric microwave, which has a food thermometer built into it.

After your cake comes out, you will need to add your dry ingredients, namely: cocoa, baking powder, eggs, butter, sugar, and milk. Mix all of your dry ingredients together thoroughly.

Place Your Mixture

Now, you will need to place your mixture into your microwave. Using your hand, slowly whisk together the wet ingredients until they are completely blended. This may take approximately two to three minutes depending on how well your microwave can work. Once your chocolate is melted, you can place your cakes into your microwave, ensuring that your chocolate is melted all the way through. Once your chocolate is in the microwave, ensure that it stays melted until you are ready to place the mug cakes in your microwave oven.
