Processed with VSCO with t1 preset


Sometimes you just crave some chocolate cake and for me, when the weather gets colder it happens more and more. I love this quick and easy recipe that is super yummy and has just a hint of spice!

4 Tablespoons flour
3 Tablespoons sugar
2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
2 Tablespoons whisked egg
3 Tablespoons milk
3 Tablespoons oil
3 Tablespoons chocolate chips
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Large Mug

1. Mix all dry ingredients in the large mug.

2. Add milk, egg, oil, and choc chips and mix until just combined, making sure you get the floury bits at the bottom but not over mixing.

3. Microwave for 3 minutes. Let cool. Top with smashed vanilla Graham crackers and/or vanilla ice cream.
