Microwave Chocolate Strawberry Lemonade Mug Cake

Enjoy cake in less than five minutes!

      I received samples from the Cocoa Exchange to facilitate this post.

   My family likes cake but making a cake can be time-consuming, even if you use a cake mix. There is the mixing of all the ingredients, the long baking time and then the waiting for the cake to cool down.My biggest complaint is the waste that comes from using a boxed cake mix. My family never eats all the cake and I end up tossing most of it. I wish cake mixes made only one cake instead of two. Maybe my family never finishes the cake as those boxed cake mixes are so bland. Homemade cake tastes so much better but takes even more time to make. So when I discovered that I could make a cake in a mug in the microwave, I was overjoyed! Now my family can have cake. I know making a cake in a mug has been around for quite some time and my teen has made them. I just wanted to share with you this delicious cake mix that I discovered that makes it so much easier. I also have a recipe that uses applesauce so the cake is a bit healthier for you.


  My Chocolate Strawberry Lemonade Mug Cake is perfect for spring. It is a light white chocolate cake that has bits of strawberry lemonade chocolate bits in it. So you get a delicious cake with a unique flavor. This cake is so moist that it needs no frosting but some whip cream and fresh strawberries would give it a perfect touch. The best part is that is that it has only five ingredients and needs only 1-2 minutes to cook. My recipe makes two large servings and can easily be doubled. So no wasted cake!


  This delicious White Chocolate Cake mix that I use has Dove white chocolate in it and it is a baking mix that you can make many things with like White Chocolate Pancakes and cupcakes. I like that I can measure out what I need for a recipe. My cake gets its unique flavor from these yummy Strawberry Lemonade rich 64% cacao dark chocolate rounds that are slightly sweet, slightly tart and have an all-natural strawberry and lemon sugar flavor. These chocolate rounds are perfect for baking.


   The Cocoa Exchange also makes delicious Strawberry Caramel Truffles that are so good. They are perfect for gifts!



                   Just look at that filling in these delicious truffles.


Chocolate Strawberry Lemonade Mug Cake

Ingredients
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup applesauce
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup DOVE® SIGNATURE White Chocolate Baking Mix
1/2 cup Strawberry Lemonade Rounds, broken into pieces


Directions
1. In a mixing bowl, whisk egg, milk, applesauce, and vanilla until well incorporated.

2. Add DOVE® SIGNATURE White Chocolate Baking Mix and Strawberry Lemonade Rounds, combine until smooth.

3. In 2 large mugs, fill ½ full of batter.

4. Microwave for 45 seconds. The cake will begin to rise above the rim of mug. Allow contents to settle and microwave for an additional 30-45 seconds. Contents should be slightly moist but not runny.

5. Allow the cake to cool for 1-2 minutes before consuming. For additional flavor place a Strawberry Lemonade Round on top the cake while it is still warm so it will melt.
