  • 4 Tbsp Bob's Red Mill Biscuit & Baking Mix or GF flour blend
  • 4 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa

  • ¼-1/2 tsp orange zest, to taste
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbsp milk or milk alternative
  • ¼ tsp vanilla

  2. In a bowl, mix together dry ingredients. In another bowl whisk together egg, milk and vanilla.
  3. Combine everything together and mix until smooth. Pour into an ungreased large latte-style* mug or 2 regular size coffee mugs, and microwave on HIGH for 3 (1000 watts) or 4 (900 watts) minutes.

*the large latte mug I used in the photos holds 1¾ cups of liquid.

  1. Haven’t tried this recipe yet, but I intend to. I LOVE this site. Thank you ever so much for your diligence and dedication in bringing this much needed site to all of us who posed the questions that you continue to answer.

  2. Tried this again today. I added some mini chocolate chips and some chopped walnuts and pecans. No orange zest. I cooked it in a large latte cup. Three minutes perfect. Very rich today. Used three TBS sugar and melted 4 TBS chocolate chips with the butter. Chocolate flavor was much better.
