Chocolate Angel Food Mug Cake


One cup, limited temptations, fat free, few ingredients, and delicious.

These are all descriptions of my "Chocolate Angel Food Mug Cake".  In only 6-8 minutes you too can create this delicious treat.  Grab you hand mixer and only 5 ingredients to get started. Those "few" ingredients would be sugar, flour, egg white, cocoa powder, and vanilla extract.  What is not to love about a chocolate cake that only has 0.2 grams of fat?!

Two years ago, my very first recipe blog post was a mug cake.  I created a delicious Strawberry Shortcake - Coffee Mug Style.  For that recipe I used box cake mixes, however as I continue to blog I aim to make a majority of my recipes from scratch.  Check out the picture quality from this old post!  Thankfully my photography skills and equipment have drastically improved since this picture was taken.  I think I took this picture with a super old IPhone.


If you are not familiar with a "mug cake" - it simply refers to a single serving cake cooked in the microwave. Typically most mug cakes only need one minute to cook and are made with less than 5 ingredients.  Mug cakes are perfect for someone who has a sweet tooth, but doesn't want to make an entire recipe they could be tempted to eat.

Be creative with the toppings for this mug cake. I topped mine with TruWhip, a natural whipped topping, and chocolate sprinkles.  Consider adding your favorite fruit, nuts, or granola!


Enjoy!
