Oatmeal - Flax seed Chocolate Mug Cake

Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a lovely week! So Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and today I’m bringing you another easy, delicious and great idea to surprise your Other Half.I hope you like it!

Makes 2 Small cakes

  • ½ C Oatmeal Flour
  • 3 T Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • ½ tspn Baking Powder
  • pinch of Salt
  • 3 T Sugar
  • 1 T vegetable Oil
  • 3 T Ground Flax Seed
  • ½ C Milk
  • +5 T Water
  • + Cooking Spray

To decorate:

  • ¼ cup melted Dark Chocolate

Combine the flax seed with three tablespoons of water, mix well and set aside for a minute.

Combine the dry ingredients: Flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder and salt, stir well to combine.  Set aside for a minute.

Combine the Milk with oil and flax seed mixture, add two  more tablespoons of water and stir until well combined. Pour this mixture over the flour mixture and stir until you get a smooth batter. (If batter seems too dry feel free to add one more tablespoon of water.)

Spray a mug or small microwavable bowl with cooking spray, and pour half the batter into it, do not fill the mug or bowl all the way to the top, leave about half an inch from the top.  

Place the cake in the microwave and cook on high for 90 seconds.  

Run a knife around the edges of the cake, then transfer to a plate.  Let it cool completely before icing it. (if you have trouble trying to remove the cake from the mug/pan, it might mean it needs more cooking, so feel free to let it cook for another 15-30 more seconds!) Repeat this step to make the second cake.

Decorate the cake with melted chocolate and fresh berries.
