Yes, you read that right. Chocolate cake in 10 minutes. Really! This easy chocolate cake recipe completely impressed me the first time I made it. I was blown away at how quick and easy it was to make and how good it was to eat!
I discovered this recipe by accident. I was having some guests over and realized that I completely forgot to plan a dessert. Duh! I found a few recipes online for mug cakes and took my favorite parts of each one to come up with this recipe. As my friends started arriving, I was whipping this easy chocolate cake together. It was ready in no time!
Since then, I’ve made this cake a few times! The best part is, you can assemble it ahead of time and bake it off when you need it. This way you can serve it warm!
All you need are a few simple ingredients and a microwave. That’s it.
