Let There Be Cake For One - Adventures With Ellie

Let There Be Cake For One

Sure it's the start of the week but how about we start it with cake? In fact a single serve kind?

This is my  favorite to make when I want a little treat to celebrate making it through the week or surviving a 3 day weekend with the kids home or even a birthday that happens to fall on a Monday like it does for me today.

 All you have to do is get a cup/mug (make sure it's microwave safe) and I'm pretty sure you have the ingredients needed to make this in your house right now.

Also I made sure to make it a little "lighter" so no need to feel guilty!

 I forgot to add if you really want to spoil yourself add  scoop of your favorite ice cream.

Chocolate Happiness in a Mug
So good you might have to make another mug
  • 1/4 cup 1% light Buttermilk
  • 1 egg egg white
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chip
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp light brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 2 Tbsp Self Raising Flour
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
In a small bowl melt the butter and mix in the chocolate chips and melt (be careful not to burn it!) in the microwave 5-10 seconds Whisk together the rest of the ingredients expect the flour. Do not over mix.Stir in the flour just until it is combined.( I will usually spray the mug w/a little "butter spray") pour batter into mug 1/2 ONLY (or you will have a mess to clean up!)Microwave 60-90 seconds (to check if it's done stick a toothpick in the middle. If the toothpick is clean it's done. If not microwave again for 5 seconds and do try again)
Prep time: Cook time: Total time: Yield: 1 serving 

Pretty easy right? If you do make it let me know what you think!  SO good.

Oh don't forget to check out the Super Moon tonight next time it will like this will be in 2034!
 Yup,  I've got my camera ready.
