Five Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

Five Minute Chocolate Mug Cake ... Microwave Chocolate Cake ... Most Dangerous Chocolate Cake in a Mug!!! A proper chocolate cake made of butter and dark chocolate instead of vegetable oil and cocoa powder which really tastes good. As soon as I saw this recipe, was eager to give it a  try. I divided the batter in two mugs and microwaved one at a time. The result was wonderful, a little bit sweet though. I really loved this Mug Cake idea because my family doesn't like chocolate cakes but now I can easily make a chocolate treat for myself without having to bake a whole cake ... a perfect quick cake for my chocolate cravings :)
