GF Mug Cake

Last night, I was overcome with a sweet attack.  But, as is usually the case I didn't have any kind of chocolate or sweets handy, something I do on p.  What I did have handy was some of my GF flour mix and a few other basic baking ingredients.  However, I didn't have the time or desire to bake a whole batch of brownies, not to mention that I didn't have any eggs.  Then I remembered how last year on Mother's day we helped the kids make mug cakes.  The phenomenon of mug cakes was something that I honestly had not been introduced to until that moment.  But last night I thought to myself, "Why can't I make a GF version of that?"

For all those who have eaten a mug cake you know that they aren't by any stretch of the imagination a gourmet option, but the point of mug cakes is to satiate a sweets craving in five minutes or less using just what you have around the house.  And, that is exactly what this new recipe I created did for me.

So here is the recipe for all my GFers out there who like me have the occasional sweet tooth that just has to be fed.

4 Tbsp of GF Flour
1 Tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 Packet of Instant Hot Chocolate
2 Tbsp Butter
1/2 cup milk or Almond Milk

Combine all ingredients in a large microwavable mug and microwave on high power for 2-3 minutes.
