Chocolate Mug Cake

Gluten Free Mug Cake

This is the best invention ever... chocolate cake in just over a minute. Whoever thought this up is a genius. It's not quite as good as "real" cake, but when you're having a chocolate craving emergency, it's a pretty dang good substitute. Go ahead and melt some chocolate chips over the top for good measure!
 
Not the prettiest, but delicious!
Too bad I can't blame my cravings on pregnancy anymore! Although I am breastfeeding, so I'm still technically eating for 2... and I'm pretty sure the baby wants chocolate.

for at least 1
Ingredients

3 Tbsp Gluten Free Flour Blend (any kind you want)
1 1/2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
1 1/2 Tbsp Sugar (you can use less or substitute other sweeteners in the appropriate amount)
1 Tbsp Oil (I use canola)
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
Dash of Vanilla Extract
2 Tbsp Milk (or milk substitute)

Directions

Combine dry ingredients in a medium-large microwave safe mug
Add wet ingredients and mix
Microwave on high for 1 to 1 1/2 mins (until it's no longer wet or squishy)
Ice with nutella or let chocolate chips melt on top

I usually eat it out of the mug but you can take it out and eat it on a plate... if you like making extra dishes ;)
