Chocolate & Marshmallow Mug Cake

Chocolate & Marshmallow Mug Cake
This 2-minute chocolate and salted caramel mug cake recipe has been on my “to bake” list for some time. I was going to head off to the (skating) rink and decided to make these on a whim. My husband could enjoy it after I left and after our daughter went down for her nap.

This mug cake literally took about 5 minutes to put together, from start to finish. I was initially worried about the size of my coffee mug, but it worked out perfectly. I added just 2 marshmallow.

I didn’t get to try any of the cake until after I got home, so it was about 2 hours old at that point. The top of the cake had dried out, but the middle was good. My suggestion is to make this when you are ready to eat it so the cake doesn’t lose any moisture.

I’m glad I tried this recipe – it is a nice quick dessert that you can make almost instantly. If you have any last-minute company coming over, this could be something you serve and impress them with!
