Peter was on call on Wednesday night and got called in at 2:30am for an emergency. And now he is on call again for the ER this weekend. A little treat is called for. He has a sweet tooth, but needs to watch his sugar intake. This little guilt-free stress reducer and energy booster topped with chocolate frosting is just what the doctor ordered. It looks and tastes so decadent that you wouldn’t believe it’s healthy, but it is. The best part is that it takes only one minute to make. Well, not exactly one minute, but no more than five.
Give it a try tomorrow. Impress someone!
One Minute Chocolate Cake in a Mug
1 tbsp plus 2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tbsp spelt flour (or all purpose flour)
1/8 tsp salt
3 tsp sugar or xylitol
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 tsp coconut oil or vegetable oil
3 tablespoons milk of choice (I used almond milk)
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Combine dry ingredients and mix very, very well. Add liquid, stir, then transfer to a little dish, ramekin, or even a coffee mug. Either microwave 30-40 seconds OR cook in a 350F oven for about 14 minutes. If you don’t want to eat it straight out of the dish, be sure to spray your dish first (and then wait for it to cool before trying to remove it).
Ingredients For Chocolate Fudge:
1/4 cup almond butter or peanut butter
4-8 tsp pure maple syrup (I used sugar free maple flavor syrup)
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tsp milk of choice, or more for thinner frosting
3/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
optional: handful of chocolate chips (the “pieces”)
Blend everything (including chips, if using) in a small food processor or Magic Bullet. If you have a bigger processor, it might be best to double the recipe so everything blends more smoothly. Best to store uneaten frosting covered in the fridge.
