There is something rather comforting about the sound of chocolate mug cake. Maybe it is because the words chocolate and mug make us think of something warm, comforting and delicious. Yes, and this is exactly what this 5 minute cake in a mug is. Perfect for breakfast, quick after school treat for your kids or even a late night treat for you . This, like all other cakes-in-mug, is a no-churn affair. You mix everything together, pour it into a mug, microwave and you are done. I like this with a few raspberries to tumble around and almond butter over it.
