There is something about a microwave cake that always attracts me. I love cake. I don’t make a lot or eat a lot, but I love it. If I had the choice of cake or ice-cream, cake would always win. When I read through other blogs, I always like to read about microwave cakes so perhaps it is not surprising that this is not the first microwave cake that I have made after reading another blog. This time, the cake comes from Seduce Your Tastebuds, who I was paired with for Taste and Create.
I’m always amazed at how well microwave cakes turn out. This one was incredibly easy to make and I liked the fact that as it didn’t contain any eggs, it was possible to make just an individual portion. I ate it warm straight out of the microwave and it was lovely and light. I’m not saying this can match a traditionally made cake, but it’s perfect to whip up quickly if you fancy a piece of cake and there’s none in the house.
I am also linking this to Sweets for a Saturday.

How to Make Microwave Chocolate Mug Cake
1. Mix all the ingredients together well in a mug.
2. Cook in the microwave. It will cook and rise very quickly. My microwave is 1,000 watt and it only needed 50 seconds. It will need a little longer in less powerful microwaves.
