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 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.

Taza 5 Minute Chocolate Cake in a Mug

Serves 1

2 Tbsp sweet butter
1 disc Taza Chocolate Mexicano, broken into several pieces
1 Tbsp sugar
1 large egg
1 Tbsp unsweetened Dark cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

In large mug, place butter and chocolate and microwave for 45 seconds.
In separate bowl, whisk together sugar, egg, cocoa, salt, flour, and baking powder until smooth, then add to mug and whisk until fully incorporated.
Microwave on high for 1 minute, allow to cool for a few seconds, and eat!

If we are deprived and don't have that brand of chocolate, what amount would we use?
