Today a new dessert that you can also serve as a snack. This time again a dessert with chocolate. It’s a bit like a lava cake. Today I am going to describe a recipe about the Chocolate Mug Cake / brownie. In my eyes it looked more like a chocolate brownie than a cake. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at how to make Chocolate Mug Cake.

The meaning of chocolate mug cake is:
”It’s a small chocolate cake. You don’t use a cake mold but a mug. You only need a couple of ingredients, a mug and a microwave”.
Chocolate Mug Cake
Making a complete chocolate cake takes quite a bit of work. In addition, I personally think that if you make a chocolate cake, it should be for a special occasion. This can also be for the weekend. If you don’t want to make a complete chocolate cake, then you will have an alternative. A chocolate mug cake, in my opinion a chocolate mug brownie. This recipe can even be counted as a vegetarian dessert. I don’t use eggs and vegetable oil. If you want to use eggs or a other oil you are free to do this. The result of my recipe is a moist chocolate cake.
If you don’t know what to serve or if you don’t want to have too much work, this is the dessert for you. I really recommend you try this recipe! Let us know what you think in the comments below! Or leave a comment on my YouTube Channel! I will appreciate that too!
