Molten Lava-esque Mocha Microwave Mug Cake for One

This delicious and healthy microwave mug cake only looks and tastes sinful. Seriously, it tastes more than sinful. I feel like it’s a cheat day. Or worse, like I’m going off-track with my healthy eating. But thankfully, it couldn’t have been further from the truth – this delicious microwave mug cake is not only quick and simple, it is also probably the healthiest mug cake I’ve ever had. As far as I know anyway.

It started with a craving for chocolate… hard to figure out how to use that, it wasn’t just a simple chocolate craving. Actually, I initially wanted my chocolate chip cookie protein pancakes but I had no chocolate chips, and for some odd reason I kept thinking they required liquid egg whites which I’m currently out of. I didn’t check, they actually don’t require any egg whites because the recipe is vegan, haha. Oh well. Anyway, I really wanted that melty chocolatey feeling of a dessert… I also wanted it right NOW. I remember I made the peanut butter chocolate cake for one a while back and thought it would be a perfect thing to do it again. Except different this time. Changed enough to satisfy my cravings exactly.

While I’ve never had a real molten lava cake, I have no idea if this is what it would actually look or taste like. I only know from pictures. But either way, to ME this was a molten lava cake. I think it only has to be a cake with melty chocolate inside right? Whatever. It tasted phenomenal and it satisfied my craving. I have no idea if you would be able to take this out of the ramekin like in all those pretty pictures you see everywhere but let’s be honest – who cares about the appearance when the taste is amazing? Plus you’re clearly alone if you’re making this — this is not a very impressive recipe to make for a gathering. Hence the “for one” 😉

This tastes AH-MAY-ZING with some raspberry reduced-sugar jam on top. Oh man! Imagine this – melty chocolate and cold raspberries… Oh man, Oh man. You don’t even know what you’re in for!
