I was desperate for a mug cake after work this evening. And I wanted to do something I hadn’t done before. So I surveyed the ingredients in my kitchen an came up with the idea of a S’more mug cake.
The cake base is a fluffy graham cracker flavored cake, with melted molten chocolate in the center. I topped it with a toasted marshmallow. You can directly melt a marshmallow on top in the microwave and let it get all gooey over your cake too, but I really wanted that toasted look, which reminds me of roasted S’mores in front of the fire.
This was pretty tasty though I would have liked some more graham cracker flavor. Next time, I might add a graham cracker crust at the bottom. Also I think I might need to top the surface with more marshmallows so that the melted marshmallows really mix with the cake. Maybe throw on a bunch of mini marshmallows.
I’ll fiddle with this some more, but this was a pretty tasty first try.

S'more Mug Cake
4 tbsp all purpose flour
2 tbsp finely crushed graham crackers
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp vegetable oil
3 tbsp fat free milk
2 tbsp granulated sugar
2-3 small squares of milk chocolate
1 large marshmallow
optional: 6-7 mini marshmallows
Combine flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder, oil, milk and sugar in a large microwave safe mug. Mix with a small whisk until no flour chunks remain. Make a hole in the middle of the batter and stick in the chocolate squares. Cook in microwave for about 1 minute. Top of cake should look done and surface of cake should be dry rather than gooey.
Either add mini marshmallows or one large marshmallow and place on top of cake and heat for about 20 seconds until marshmallows are puffy. Or you can also take large marshmallow and toast in toaster oven for a few seconds until surface is light brown. I think the best result would be to use mini marshmallows and melt on cake in microwave and then add a toasted large marshmallow for garnish.
