Oh hi!

5 Minute Chocolate Fudge S'mores Mug Cake I howsweeteats.com

Just sharing a s’mores mug cake today. That can be made in 5 minutes.

You know… NO BIG DEAL.

5 Minute Chocolate Fudge S'mores Mug Cake I howsweeteats.com

Since you’re asking, yes… I have always thought the whole “cake in a mug in a microwave” thing was sort of skeevy. Well, until I was feeling superbly lazy last week and housing a mad chocolate craving. Like, really mad. So I gave it a try.

And another.

Annnnnd maybe another. Oops.

And another?

Then I thought… is there anything in the world that I’m more obsessed with than s’mores? Umm nope. There isn’t. But just so you know, I’m also allowed to say that about guacamole, Ryan Gosling and chocolate peanut butter. So stop looking at me that way.

In minutes, with a few tweaks and twists and makeshift graham crusts and marshmallow middles, I had a s’mores mug.

And it was just SO… FUDGEY.

Sidebar: for years as a quick treat, I’ve melted butter in a bowl, added graham cracker crumbs, thrown on some chocolate chips and marshmallows then stuffed it in the microwave for 10 seconds. Then I usually burn the roof of my mouth because I’m so impatient and inhale it anyway.

And you know what?

Sorry for the shouting, but it’s necessary. !!!

This is a much more practical, easier, quicker version of my smore’s cake in a jar, with marshmallows stuffed in the center and even a few healthier adjustments.

I want to marry this mug. Don’t judge me.

And if you love someone (like yourself), this would be an outstanding choice for a fast Valentine’s Day dessert. So… love yourself. PUHlease.

5 Minute Chocolate Fudge S’mores Mug Cake

[adapted from food network]

makes 1 serving, can easily be doubled

2-3 tablespoons graham cracker crumbs

3 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 large egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (mine was dark cocoa, hence the dark color)

1/8 teaspoon baking powder

pinch of salt

1 1/2 ounces milk chocolate (chopped or morsels)

marshmallow fluff, cream or actual marshmallows

Combine 3 tablespoons butter and 1 ounce of chocolate in a small bowl, then melt in the microwave for 20-30 seconds. Set aside. In another bowl, combine remaining melted butter with 2-3 tablespoons of graham cracker crumbs and stir until moistened. Press graham crumbs into the bottom of your mug.

In a bowl. whisk egg, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Add in flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa, stir until a thick batter forms. Stream in melted butter and chocolate, mixing to combine. Fold in remaining chocolate chips. Add half of the mixture on top of the graham crust, then throw on a scoop of marshmallow fluff/cream or a few marshmallows. Add remaining batter on top, then pop in the microwave for 1 minute and 20 seconds to almost 2 minutes. Remove and top with additional marshmallow if desired. You can pop it back in the microwave for 5-10 seconds to make them melty, or pop them directly under the broiler for about 10 seconds to toast if desired. You can also use a kitchen torch if you have one. Sprinkle with graham crumbs!

Notes: If you don’t have whole wheat pastry flour, you can use all-purpose. I would not recommend using regular whole wheat. Additionally, I have made this by substituting coconut butter for the full amount of butter. It was just as delicious, albeit slightly drier. You cannot taste coconut at all. Finally, take into account the power of your microwave. Mine has a mind of it’s own and is insanely powerful, so I cooked this on 80% power. Judge accordingly and add/subtract a few minutes of cooking if you know your’s is wonky too. Unfortunately it may take 1-2 trial runs to get the right consistency because all microwaves are different, but I promise it’s worth it!

    Fudgey, made in 5 minutes, and in the microwave….that’s my kind of dessert.

    I’ve said it once but I’ll say it again, every single time I think you can’t torture and tempt me any more, you manage to top yourself. I mean, the fact that this only takes 5 minutes to cook alone had me sold :)

    My husband was sitting right next to me as I drooled over this and said “that looks really good”. Man approved.

    I was skeptical about microwave “cakes” until I tried one and holy batman they are a dangerous creature.

    That toasted marshmallow is making me crave summer with it’s campfires & ooeygooey-mess-everywhere-but-no-one-cares s’mores. Mmmmmmmmm

    O.M.G I want a microwave just so I can make this. Right, what food blogger doesn’t have a microwave?! yup, that would be me.

    Zesty Cook — February 10, 2012 @ 1:42 pm

    Oh my gosh…you are right, what a perfect Valentine’s dessert! Do you buy the graham cracker crumbs already crumbled, or do you do it yourself? I’m kind of lazy ;)


    • Jessica — February 10th, 2012 @ 1:44 pm

      I buy them as crumbs. :)

    Amanda @ Once Upon a Recipe — February 10, 2012 @ 2:56 pm

    I once tried a microwave chocolate cake recipe that did not turn out and completely turned me off of the idea of microwave cakes altogether. Which was really sad, because it seemed so convenient! But this looks super amazing and your method is a bit different, so I will give it a try and pray for a microwave cake miracle! Thanks and happy Friday!

    Oh. My. Word. I’ve been Pinning mug cakes for all too long, and I think this one has finally pushed me to actually make a mug cake. Love it. Thanks.

    Christine — February 10, 2012 @ 4:25 pm

    Excellent use of the word skeevy, bravo.

    P.S. I’m gonna love myself with some of this, right now.

    Dang it, I think you may have just made me think twice about what I am making for Valentine’s Day dessert. This looks so good! I have yet to try the mug cake concept, but this looks like the perfect way to start!

    Stephanie H — February 10, 2012 @ 5:17 pm

    the five year old in our house peeked over my shoulder at the pictures and asked why I can’t cook like that :) Let me know where you want me to ship him!!

    Jules @La Petite Maison Verte — February 10, 2012 @ 5:26 pm

    this looks and sounds absolutely delicious. I’ve made cake in a mug a few times but our microwave broke ages ago and we haven’t bought a new one yet so there’s no super fast smore mug cake for me :( I will save the recipe though, looks yummy

    5 minutes to a cup of chocolate heaven. You can throw down dessert. No doubt. Really good stuff!

    I stumbled on something that made me think of you: http://www.vosgeschocolate.com/category/all_bacon_chocolate

    Bacon and chocolate are not a foreign concept to me, but Vosges seems to have upped the ante so I got a little excited.

    J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) — February 11, 2012 @ 12:32 am

    I just bought all the ingredients for s’mores today because I started craving them last night for some reason. This sounds exactly like what I want. :D

    Staci — February 11, 2012 @ 1:13 am

    So here I sit, desperate for anything yummy, but stuck in the house with a sleeping child. And what do I stumble upon? It is like a light shined down on my iPad! I almost broke my leg from tripping over the dogs to get to the kitchen. Bless you for providing me with the opportunity to literally increase my waist size in peace and quiet while watching Jersey Shore. Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Clause!

    sweet Adam’s ribs~! YOU are pure, unadulterated, chocoholic evil…. and I say that with all due respect, reverence, love, and may I please kiss your feet? Here I sit, 20 feet away from my kitchen with every single ingredient (marshmallow fluff, mini marshmallows, and JUMBO marshmallows… which I feel obligated to “test” in order to see which performs best), and my DH away for 48 hours. Suddenly I am rethinking my breakfast plans… and how long I should wait to exercise after trying this recipe. Seriously, I have to give it a test run before serving to the DH next week, right???
    Chocolate for breakfast… it’s (gonna be) a beautiful thing~!
