Gooey Chocolate Chip Cookie Mug Cake

A gooey chocolate chip cookie mug cake is, IMHO, the best kind of cake, Why? Because mug cakes are some of my favorite cakes, as it just doesn’t get easier than baking a cake in the microwave – and I am all about easy. Particularly when said cake is a little on the gooey side, studded with melted chocolate chips and beyond excellent with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. A cake made in the microwave is always a homemade cake, obviously, and that’s kind of special, too, if you ask me.
