There's this one character I've come to love in the past year. Her name is Celaena Sardothien and she has quite the affinity for chocolate cake.
When I was planning the next Bookshelf-Kitchen post, I searched the recipes I already had first to see if there was one that would match with a book or series. I have a lot of recipes involving chocolate, but this one in particular made me think of Adarlan's Assassin.
Like my brownie-in-a-mug recipe, this is quick and very easy to make.
Chocolate Bliss Mug Cake
1/4 c. semisweet chocolate chips (I used Hershey's special dark, and it turned out fine)
3 T. milk
2 T. all-purpose flour
1/4 t. baking powder
1/2 T. vegetable oil
whipped cream, raspberries, chocolate shavings, powdered sugar - all topping options (I used whipped cream)
Combine chocolate chips and milk in a microwave-safe measuring cup. Microwave for about 40 seconds. Mix with a small whisk until chocolate is completely melted. Add flour, baking powder, and oil and whisk until batter is smooth. Cook in microwave for about 1 minute. If cake isn't done, heat an additional 15 seconds. Let cake cool for a few minutes before adding topping and eating. Best consumed while still warm.
I think this a recipe that Celaena would definitely appreciate.
