serves: 1



1. Combine flour, dark cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda in a microwave-safe mug. Stir well.

2. Add in buttermilk and canola oil. Whisk together with a fork. Stir in chocolate chips. Microwave for 60 seconds, or until the cake is set (30 second increments after, for me 2 minutes total is perfect). Enjoy with whipped cream and chocolate chips!
