Perfect! Chocolate cake in the microwave, and I have strawberries for that!

Five-Minute Chocolate Mug Cake - iVillage

Here is tonight's dessert: the 5 minute Chocolate Mug Cake topped with Strawberries. It hit the spot, even though I lacked the garnishes (whipped cream or vanilla ice cream).

I sliced up some of those delicious Bautista Farms strawberries and stirred in a little brown sugar while the microwave worked magic on the cakes.

I used almond flour in place of wheat flour, and coconut oil instead of vegetable oil. I also didn't have any chocolate chips to add, but it hit the spot anyway. In all, not a bad 5 minute dessert!

Single Serving Chocolate Mug Cake:
4 Tbs flour
4 Tbs sugar
2 Tbs cocoa
1 egg
3 Tbs milk
1 Tbs oil
1/2 tsp vanilla

Using a coffee mug, mix dry ingredients, then stir in egg, milk and oil, then vanilla. Place in microwave and cook on high for 3 minutes. The batter may rise to the top, but it will drop down as it cools. Top with sugared strawberries and your favorite accompaniments and enjoy!
