2 Tbsp cocoa
1 egg

1 tsp. vanillaWhisk the dry ingredients together in a good size mug. Then add the rest of the ingredients and mix together with a fork.

Put in microwave on high for 2 minutes and 45 seconds. You may have to adjust the time slightly for your own microwave. The cake will rise then set while cooking so leave enough room in your mug.

Give it a couple minutes to set. Then enjoy!
If you have any on hand you can top your cake with some Whipped Coconut Cream 🙂
