You’re putting on an extra layer, the kiddos are constantly complaining about their feet being cold, and all you want to do is cosy up with a hot mug of Urban Brew and stare out a rain-spattered window like you’re part of a sad music video.
It’s official - winter is coming.
But we’ve got just the thing to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Something that’ll turn your sad music video into a Cadbury chocolate ad. Wouldn’t it be nice?
We’ve put a spin on a classic comfort food: the mug cake. So small, so easy, and so irresistibly delicious, this cup of joy will make you feel like you’re floating in gooey, chocolatey goodness... with Urban Brew coffee in every bite.
Yep. Dreams really do come true.
5 tbsp. brewed coffee (about two UB short shots - keep them separate!)
3 tbsp. chocolate chips (we used milk but you can use whatever you prefer)
¼ c. flour
2 tbsp. sugar
¼ tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt
1 tbsp. cocoa powder
2 tbsp. milk
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1. In a large microwave-safe mug, add one shot of your preferred UB brew and 3 tbsp of choc chips. Stir until chocolate chips are completely melted. (You might need to microwave it for a couple of seconds if the shot isn’t hot enough to melt the choc chips.)
2. In a separate small bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and cocoa powder.
3. Add milk and oil to the dry ingredients, stir until most of the lumps are gone, then add your second shot of coffee. Stir that bad boy.
4. Pour your batter into the mug with the original shot and chocolate but don't stir it!
5. Throw a paper towel over the mug to avoid splattering and chuck it into the microwave on high for 90 seconds or until the cake is set.
6. Dress it up with a squeeze of whipped cream, a scoop of ice cream, or just dig right in!
So there you have it! A delicious, mug-ical treat for you to whip up in five minutes. Feel free to stretch your i-mug-ination and make your own changes - we’d love to see it!
Okay, we’ll stop with the terrible puns now.
So hop into your PJs, grab a mug and whip up this delectable winter treat, guaranteed to keep your belly happy all winter long (or just until you want another).
