Taza 5 Minute Chocolate Cake in a Mug

Since there's always chocolate at my house, I have no excuse for not baking a chocolate cake.. but suppose I don't really want to make an entire cake. Suppose it's just me? 5 Minute Cake in a Mug to the Rescue. I've posted other recipes for the 5 Minute Cake in a Mug, but this recipe from Taza, my favorite daily chocolate, is exceptional. Well, Taza Chocolate is exceptional! I have made this with the Taza Chocolate Mexicano (70% dark), but for variety, you could use the Taza Chiptole Chocolate or the Taza Orange Mexicano disc. Whichever you choose, you'll end up with the perfect single serving cake!

Recipe from the Taza Recipe Library.

I suppose it would work with any other good quality chocolate?

I'm with Marlyn--How much chocolate is in one of the Taza disks?

1.4 ounces in a disk.. two disks in a package, but calls for only one disk, so yes, you can substitute other good dark chocolate.. however, I love the texture with the Taza.

I will save this recipe...sometimes I want a piece of chocolate cake but do not want to make a full size one. I think I will layer some chocolate mousse on top. Yum!
