One Minute Chocolate Cup-Cake
Five minute mug cakes are increasingly getting popular. It's a quick sweet fix, convenient and easy to clean up. We tried different recipes and although it only takes 5 minutes to cook it, making the cake mix still takes quite a bit of time. I also found out that eggs in a microwave is not a good idea (just think salmonella). I searched for a mug cake recipe using store bought cake mixes and didn't found any, maybe I just have to click past the 2nd page in the google search result.
After 3 burnt cakes in a cup, we finally got the perfect timing and mix right. So, without further ado, we (me and our little man) present to you our 1 minute mug cake.
:: Ingredients ::
microwaveable mug or cup
8 tablespoons of Devil's Food cake mix (we used Duncan Hine's)

Let me know if you made some and how you liked it.
