Oh, how I love you, Pinterest. I can easily while way hours, scrolling through workouts, fashion, motivation, home interiors and books.
But, how often do I find myself scrolling through tasty treats? All. The. Time.
Sometimes, it’s healthy stuff that I pin and save for later. I’ve tried out lots: some are more successful than others. Disasters include cinnamon quinoa breakfast bars (far too dense) and black bean brownies (dry, dry, dry).
Other times, I can’t resist the naughty stuff. And that’s where I’ve been drawn to recently.
And I’ve found a recipe that not only works, but gives me a warm, tasty, chocolate hit whenever I want it, as all of the ingredients are store cupboard staples. And it’s pretty naughty.
It’s a chocolate mug cake. Dreeeeaaamy! Have you ever tried it?
It takes about twenty seconds to throw together:
Grab a mug. Add in:
1/4 cup of plain flour
1/4 cup of sugar
a pinch of salt
2 tablespoons of cocoa (I use Green & Blacks)
Give the dry ingredients a quick mix together.
Then add in:
2 tablespoons of olive oil
3 tablespoons of water
Mix it all up. If it’s a little dry, add a little more water.
Pop it in the microwave for 1 minute, 40 seconds.
Oh, my. It comes out with just that slight gooiness that is heaven!
