Today is National Mocha Day! Â Here is recipe for an easy Chocolate Mocha Mug Cake, perfect for celebrating the day.
Mug cakes are a delicious dessert, and so easy to make! Â This cake comes together in only a few minutes, so it is perfect when you want a quick dessert just for yourself, because you need a quick coffee and chocolate fix.
And a Mocha Mug Cake makes sense, since after all it is made in a coffee cup! Mug cakes can be a little tricky, since it is easy to over cook them. I found that this cake cooks in just 1 1/2 minutes in my microwave, and any more than that and it dries out. Â The difference between perfect and overcooked is short, so make sure you check the cake after 1 1/2 minutes and only cook it more if it still looks wet on top.
To make the Mocha flavor I mixed coffee into the batter. A strong, bold coffee will give you the most intense flavor. I also added in a few chocolate chips to the batter to add in extra bits of chocolate throughout the batter.
Put the butter in the coffee mug and melt the butter in the microwave.
Stir in the sugar.
Add the flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder and stir to mix well.
Pour in the coffee and mix.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Microwave for about 1:30 seconds, until top looks cooked.
Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
