On rainy days, I just want to retreat into the warmth of my cozy little apartment and whip up a batch of gooey chocolate chip cookies. But here’s the problem: I’m in college. I don’t have the time or money to go out and buy flour and baking powder and a cookie sheet.
But here’s some good news: you don’t HAVE to head to Fred Meyer and buy out their baking aisle to make a delicious treat. In fact, you just need a mug, a microwave, and a few simple ingredients.
Chocolate Chip Mug Cake
To begin, make sure you have a mug that is microwave-safe and fairly big—the cake is going to rise and you don’t want it spilling out over the top!
Next, put in a ¼ cup of pancake mix, ¼ cup of milk, and 3 tablespoons of sugar. If you don’t have measuring cups, just eyeball it—it’s such an easy recipe that you can experiment a few times to find out what works and what doesn’t. Stir these ingredients together.
Now, time for the chocolate! I just took a few sections of a Hershey’s bar and broke it up into little pieces. Stir those in with the rest of your ingredients.
Put your mug in the microwave and set the timer for about a minute and 20 seconds. Watch the mug the whole time—you don’t want a cake-y mess all over your microwave.
When the timer goes off, take it out—carefully—and enjoy your cake in a mug!
