2 Ingedient Mug Cake

Saturday was a rainy day. Rainy days have a way of making me want to sleep all day, or at least have a cozy warm mug of something all day. Coffee? Tea? How about cake? You could even just have a mug of each. That sounds like a pretty cozy rainy day to me. Especially when this mug of cake is super fast and easy to make and will only make enough for a small treat without completely ruining your diet.
Here's how it's done:

3 tablespoons boxed cake mix (I like to use chocolate)
2 - 2 1/2 tablespoons milk of your choice
toppings or add-ins of your choice
A sturdy microwave safe mug (I do not recommend using a clear glass mug)

All you do is mix the cake mix and milk together in a microwave safe mug. It should be the consistency of normal cake batter. You can add anything you like - chocolate chips, nuts, sprinkles, etc. Microwave for about 1 minute and 45 seconds. The mug will be very hot so let it sit in the microwave for about 30 seconds before taking it out. Top it with ice cream, whipped cream, icing, chocolate syrup, anything you want!
This is not one of those recipes where the cake rises to the top of the mug and stays super fluffy. It will puff up while cooking but most likely fall back down a little so don't worry if it seems to go flat. It will still be fluffy, moist, and delicious!

That looks soooo good - I keep cookie dough in my fridge to microwave in a mug every once in a while for a treat :) Why do you advise against a clear mug?

Clear glass is more likely to break when overheated. I actually broke a clear class mug in the microwave once....

I just made this and it is SO delicious! I used chocolate cake mix, put some chocolate chips on top and added vanilla ice cream!
