In the mood for chocolate cake? For this recipe, all you need is a microwave and a mug to make your very own personal cake! The best part? It takes less than 2 minutes to cook!
The hero ingredient in this delicious single-serve treat is Amazonia's Spiced Cacao Powder. The ultimate healthy indulgence, this warm and invigorating blend will satisfy your late-night chocolate cravings. With its rich dark chocolate taste, Cacao is an excellent source of iron and magnesium and contains more than 27 times the antioxidants of blueberries. It's combined with traditional Ayurvedic spices including Cinnamon, Turmeric and Ginger, which are renowned for their medicinal properties.
You can top this mug cake with anything you like, but we highly recommend a few fresh strawberries, a drizzle of melted chocolate and a sprinkle of icing sugar. If you give this recipe a go, remember to tag us (@amazoniaco) on Instagram – we love seeing your creations!
