5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

Teresa Bryant


This cake is super fast and easy to make. It's perfect for that "sweet" craving we get and just don't know what to eat to fulfill it. I had this recipe for a few months and tonight I tried it and my Husband loved it. I was impressed at the ease in which it took to make it.
