So recently I’ve been looking for some sweet desert alternatives to the more bigger traditional deserts like cake, brownies, and cupcakes. In my case, the traditional recipes just take too much tim and effort to make whenever I’m getting a sweet tooth, not to mention the huge pile of dishes these traditional recipes
leave behind. So I’ve found the perfect alternative, a cake in a mug, its extremely easy and it tastes absolutely amazing, so I thought I would share my favorite cake in a cup recipe with all of you.
My favorite cake cup recipe that I’ve tried so far is a fudge chocolate s’mores cake, its extremely delicious, and it only takes about five minutes to make.
So here’s what you’re going to need to make this cake in a cup:
- Either marshmallow fluff, or actual marshmallows
- 1 1/2 ounces of milk chocolate
- 1/8 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1 small sprinkle of salt
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup of pastry flour
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 medium or large sized egg
- 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar
- 3 1/2 tablespoons of unsalted, melted butter
- 2-3 tablespoons of crushed up graham crackers (or graham cracker crumbs)
The first step in making this cake is to combine the crushed up graham crackers and a 1/2 tablespoon of melted butter, once the butter has slightly softened the graham crackers, you should place the graham crackers into the bottom of your cup to act as your base. Next, combine the rest of the melted butter (3 tablespoons) with the milk chocolate and place the bowl into the microwave to melt the chocolate. Once this step is finished, mix the egg, the granulated sugar, and the vanilla in a bowl until smooth, then add in the melted butter and chocolate mixture and continue mixing. (Optional, you can also fold in some chocolate chips into the batter at this point if you want to.) Then place this mixture in the cup on top of the graham cracker base layer. Next add a layer of marshmallow fluff, and then another layer of the cake batter mixture on top of the marshmallow. Then place into the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes and top the mixture with one final layer of marshmallow fluff, and graham cracker crumbs.
This recipe might take a little bit of trial and error, but it definitely gets easier the more you make it. I really hope you guys enjoyed this recipe, and that you try it out sometime. If you tried out this recipe please let me know your thoughts and how it went, in the comments.
