If you love chocolate, and you love spice, this gluten free chocolate chili mocha mug cake is for you.
Have you tried Starbucks new Chili Mocha latte yet? It is so good, and I don’t even like sweet coffee drinks! I get mine with no whip, just to make it a little easier to handle the guilt of drinking one :-).
I tried to duplicate that flavor in this super easy, 5-minute gluten free mug cake recipe.
You read that right. You can eat a rich, chocolaty dessert in under 5 minutes. It can be quicker than this…the actual cook time in your microwave is only one minute! How fast can you toss ingredients into a mug? (And if you prefer something fruity, give this Gluten Free Cherry Cobbler Mug Cake recipe a try. It is delicious with any fresh fruit!)
Now, if your kids are like mine, feel free to leave the cayenne pepper out of this recipe and just serve them delicious gluten free chocolate mug cake. Let them toss a few chocolate chips in and have some fun. This recipe is so easy, they can even make these on their own…just make sure they don’t dust your whole kitchen in flour!
I was skeptical about mug cakes for a long time. I couldn’t understand how these cakes could retain their moist fluffy texture when they were cooked in a microwave. If you look at this photo, you can see it looks like a regular cake.
