Compliments of theKitchn
Recipe by Kirbie's Cravings
Can you believe we are in Week 7 of our 13 Easy Microwave Mug Cake series; how quickly time passes. This recipe is one you will want to share with everyone and a great idea for St. Patrick’s Day, put it on your calendar for March. It's even got a beer mug for the occasion. Unfortunately, they're clear mugs so you see the cooked cake sticking to the inside, which is not the most attractive presentation but you can overlook that after you taste it. If the presentation is truly not acceptable, some of the big box and craft stores sell ceramic beer mugs around St. Patrick's Day, so check them out...
NOTE: Much of the beer disappears when the cake cooks so you don’t really taste it. But what remains is the nuttiness of the stout, which goes great with the chocolate.
Now, let's get cooking...
Chocolate Stout Mug Cake
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 1.5 minutes
Total Time: 6.5 minutes
- 4 tablespoons all purpose flour
- 5 tablespoons white granulated sugar
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 2 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 egg (exclude if too spongy)
- 3 1/2 tablespoons milk
- Splash of vanilla extract
- 3 1/2 tablespoons oil
- 5 1/2 tablespoons Guinness beer
Mix all ingredients into a beer mug with a small whisk or fork until batter is smooth. Cook in microwave for approximately 1 1/2 minutes. Make sure not to overcook or the cake becomes rubbery.
Bon Appétit or Cheers!
