Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and what better way to surprise all the others in the family than this quick fix dessert after a hearty meal. And we do all know that Valentine day goes hand in hand with chocolates and strawberries.
My kids are crazy about mug cakes and once my elder one got the idea of how a mug cake works its magic in the microwave he started making several cakes all by himself. I’m still amazed that my microwave has managed to survive after all his crazy attempts at making mug cakes.
This chocolate strawberry cake is totally vegan. I have not used any dairy products and wanted to see how the texture would be when used whole wheat flour and I’m really happy with the result.
The first mug turned out to be a bit hard and dense and I realized that the mixture was not thin enough and also the strawberry jam that I added was not distributed well enough as I added plain water.
So in the next mug I added hot water and adjusted the quantity too which thinned out the jam and I was able to mix the batter quite easily. You must also pay attention to the timing as even if you microwave for a few extra seconds you cake will not be moist but will turn out hard and dense.
Use a fork and take the time to mix the dry ingredients well and after adding the liquid ingredients also make sure that you mix well and there are no dry patches of flour is left as such at the bottom and sides of the mug.
You can very easily double or triple the ingredients to make more cakes and this chocolate strawberry mug cake is a quick snack fix too which the kids would love to gorge on.
