BLACK FOREST MUG CAKE: National Black Forest Cake Day

Photo: CakeontheRun
Yesterday was Black Forest Cake Day, and I posted a recipe for a variation: Black Forest Pie. It's a very retro recipe. But maybe you do want Black Forest Cake, but you only want a single serving, not a whole cake. Well here's a super easy recipe for Black Forest Mug Cake from Cake on the Run via the Great British Bake-Off newsletter. I love Mug Cakes. Quick and Easy..and delicious! Make this tonight! 

(serves 1) 

For the Cake.
3 heaped Tbsp plain flour 
1/3 tsp baking powder 
1 Tbsp butter 
3 tbsp milk 
1 tsp cocoa powder or drinking chocolate 
2 Tbsp sugar 

For the Filling. 2 Tbsp thick cream or yoghurt 
For the Filling 1 Tbsp cherry jam 

Put all of the cake ingredients into a large mug. 
Mix until smooth and creamy. 
Microwave on high for 90 seconds. 
Slice in half and sandwich with jam and cream. 
Stack sponges on top of each other and top with more jam and cream.
