Did you see our list of 10 Tasty Mug Cakes in Minutes? Well I have another one to add to that incredible collection. It’s a salted caramel chocolate mug cake that takes just 2 minutes to make. It’s rich, decadent, and oh yes delicious. The recipe makes 1 mug cake in a regular sized coffee mug. It will take you 5 minutes top to bottom. How’s that for quick and easy!
If you can’t find salted caramels, you can sprinkle a little fleur de sel salt into the mixture as you’re dropping in the caramels. I like a little sprinkling of it on top of my cake too. (I can’t get enough of sweet and salty together.)
