    Astia's Note:

    I'd tried a couple of these somewhat fad-induced mug cakes and found them a bit lacking. Instead of using cocoa powder and plain old chocolate chips, I went a little simpler and went and got my favorite bar of dark chocolate and used it as a substitute. Delicious and fluffy, and five minutes from cupboard to done!

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Melt the chocolate and butter in a double boiler. Set aside to cool for a minute or two.
    2. 2
      Add flour, cinnamon, and sugar to a small mixing bowl; mix well.
    3. 3
      Add in the egg and mix again.
    4. 4
      Add in the milk and mix yet again.
    5. 5
      Add in the chocolate-butter mixture and mix once more.
    6. 6
      Pour into a large coffee mug and microwave on medium power for two minutes, then high power for about a minute. Cake is done when a skewer test comes out with moist crumbs.
    7. 7
      Allow to cool (while you're cleaning up is sufficient) and dig in! Add a scoop of your favorite ice cream on top for a delicious change of pace.

      I really liked this, especially with the little touch of cinnamon! I used a Purdy's 70% dark chocolate bar and cheated by just melting the butter and chocolate together in the microwave. Made for PAC Spring '11

      This was a real treat. Very chocolate-y and quite moist and flavorful. I didn't have any frosting though, so I just sprinkled a little powdered sugar on top. I will try this again, attempting to reduce the butter amount though, so I can have it more often. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Arili.
