5x7 card and matching mini mug
I use my matching mini mug everyday. It's espresso sized – the absolute perfect size for mug cake (recipe below) – but you'll find jumbo size and bone china, too. Get yours when you order your ๐™ฑ๐™ด๐™ด Mาฝษพษพแƒง cards.

Instant Cocoa Mug Cake

For this recipe, you make "The Mix" and then whenever you're in the mood for warm, soft chocolate cake, you use it to make the batter, right in your mug. One minute later, you've got mug cakes! No eggs needed and if you use a milk substitute, it's completely vegan. Oat and almond milk are delicious partners of chocolate!

The Mix
1 1/8 cup of all-purpose flour (or a heaping cup)
3 packets of instant hot cocoa (the cheap kind from the supermarket)*
2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 t. baking powder
1/8 t. salt
optional: 1/4–1/2 c. chocolate chips

The Mug Cake
Blend in a small mug or ramekin:
1/3 c The Mix (a heaping 1/4 cup)
2 Tbsp milk (or milk substitute)
1 Tbsp oil
Top with 1 large marshmallow or a handful of mini marshmallows (optional).

Microwave for 60 seconds. You can make multiple mug cakes at a time and it doesn't affect the microwaving time.

Here's a printable recipe that you can wrap around your container or premade The Mix.
