S’mores Chocolate Mug Cake

S’mores Chocolate Mug Cake

Okay, I am officially obsessed with this recipe. In 5 minutes flat, you can have a fudgy, velvety chocolate dessert that looks and tastes like it came from an upscale restaurant. It could be the best elevated s’more you’ve ever tasted, and all you need is a few simple ingredients and a microwave.

It has the perfect balance of gooey and fluffy, rich and sweet, and wholesome yet indulgent. Here’s why it’s worth raving over…

  • It’s made of pure ingredients – like nut butter, Greek yogurt, cocoa powder, and maple syrup
  • It’s easier than easy to make – just a bit of measuring and a good stir
  • It only uses one dish – as someone who hates cleaning up, this is a major plus.
  • It looks pretty – seriously impress your friends and family. Stick it in a ramekin and they’ll never know it only took 5-minutes! 
  • IT’S RIDICULOUSLY DELICIOUS

 

 

It’s perfect for so many occasions… anytime you need to satisfy a chocolate craving, are too impatient to wait for brownies to bake, don’t feel like worrying about cleaning or leftovers, or want an elegant dessert for a date night (it’s great for sharing too). If you’re a fan of easy and delicious recipes, this dessert is made for you!

All in all, I hope you fall in love with this decadent chocolate cake as much as I did 🙂

 

Here’s how to make it…

Yields1 Serving
Prep Time3 minsCook Time2 minsTotal Time5 mins

 1 tbsp flour
 1 tbsp cocoa powder
 ¼ tsp baking powder
 pinch salt
 1 tbsp peanut butter (or other nut butter)
 1 tbsp Greek yogurt
 1 ½ tbsp maple syrup

 ¼ tsp vanilla extract
 2 tbsp chocolate chips

1

Stir together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl or mug.

Add peanut butter, Greek yogurt, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and milk. Mix well until evenly combined - it should be smooth and thicken a bit.

Stir in chocolate chips.

2

Microwave on high for 45 seconds. Check and microwave for about 15 seconds more, until the top is set and it's just a little gooey in the center.

For a s'mores cake, add 2-3 marshmallows during the last 15 seconds of cooking time. Top with crushed graham crackers.
