Gluten Free Sharing Size Chocolate Mug Cake

Mug cakes have been popular almost as long as microwaves have been around. This Gluten Free Chocolate Sharing Size Mug Cake remake is made from Gluten Free Bisquick. It’s a larger, sharing size microwave mug cake, perfect for inside-date nights, made in a cereal bowl.


My husband and I have a standing outside date night every week. We usually go to one of the few gluten-safe restaurants in our area or for a walk around the park. (Or a walk around the freezer section at Sam’s Club, depending on just how hot the weather is!) We’re able to have outside dates because we have built in babysitters. Our 16 year old twins hold down the fort while we spend an hour or two alone. But once upon a time, those 16 year olds were 3. And we move alot, (on average every 8 months. More when the girls were little) so we never knew anyone well enough to get a baby sitter. We perfected the inside date. We’re actually so good at it, that in addition to our weekly outside dates, we have lots and lots of inside dates. We don’t always have a snack on our inside date, but when we do, it’s something like this.
