What do you do when you crave a chocolate cake but have no time? You make this chocolate mug cake! Moist, light, and airy, made with ingredients you probably already have on hand. And best of all, it gets done in less than 2 minutes.
Add all ingredients to a microwave-safe mug except the hot water. Combine well. Use a fork or whisk to ensure no lumps. Then, add the hot water and combine well again. Pro tip - For a chocolate cake, I like to start with the dry ingredients and then add the wet ingredients to ensure I have fewer lumps.
Bake in the microwave for 60 to 90 seconds (1 to 1 ½ minute) until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Mine took about 70 seconds.Pro tip - The batter does rise when baking so make sure the batter is about half the cup. If necessary, divide between two cups and bake for 50 seconds each.
Let cool for a few minutes. Then, top with whipped cream. I used a spray whipped cream and sprinkles Pro tip - Make sure the cake is cooled before topping with whipped cream or it will melt.
Use a microwave-safe mug or ramekin to bake this cake. The mugs do become hot so make sure to use a clean kitchen cloth to handle the heat.

When done - let cool slightly as the cake is hot. Unless you want to eat hot cake
Whipped cream will melt on the hot cake so wait for a few minutes or serve it on the side.
