EASY CHOCOLATE STRAWBERRY MUG CAKE RECIPE


  • Author: Zoha
  • Total Time: 10-12 min
  • Yield: 2 mug cakes

Description

Two delicious chocolate mug cakes topped with chocolate covered strawberries made in just ten minutes, making them the perfect date night dessert!


Ingredients

Cakes:

  • 6 tbsp whole milk
  • 10 chocolate cream cookies (e.g., Back To Nature, Oreo)
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Topping:

  • 1/2 cup chopped milk chocolate
  • Vegetable oil as needed 
  • 6 strawberries, roughly chopped

Instructions

  • Add the milk and cookies to a bowl, and use a fork to crush the cookies until there are no big chunks remaining
  • Add the oil, vanilla and sugar and whisk to combine
  • Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt, and whisk until just combined
  • Divide the batter evenly between 2 microwave safe mugs (10-12oz)
  • Microwave the mugs one by one for 60-90s until the cakes are done
  • In the meanwhile, melt the chocolate over a double boiler (or in the microwave but heat in only 10 second increments and slowly stir between each until melted). Add vegetable oil as needed to make the chocolate runny / pourable
  • Once the cakes are done, cover them with the chopped strawberries and pour over the melted chocolate. I like to eat them warm, but you can also let them cool down a bit before adding the toppings
  • Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • These cakes are best eaten the same day
  • You can easily halve this recipe to make a single serving
