I am a big fan of the combination of Chocolate and Walnuts! I think they make an amazing combination for a dessert. I have a Chocolate Date Walnut Loaf Cake on my blog, which has been quite popular among my readers on Facebook.

This time, I have made that same recipe in a mug. This is strictly no-sharing-dessert which you can make for you and your partner. Plus it limits your calorie intake since it is portion controlled.

This walnut stuffed chocolate cake always reminds me of my childhood favorite, ChocoWalnut Loaf Cake from Monginis or Mio Amore. It was an evening indulgence which I would often get to enjoy with my parents.

Imagine my excitement when I was able to perfectly recreate that in my own kitchen. The only change I made was to reduce the amount of sugar. We prefer mildly sweet cakes, so often my cakes use a limited amount of sugar. However, if you prefer your cakes sweet, then please go ahead and add another tablespoon of sugar.

Unlike other chocolate mug cake recipes, this is oil-based and low-fat cake recipe. On top of this, it is a one-bowl recipe. All you have to do is bring together all the ingredients in a bowl and make the cake batter. 

You can take any cups or mugs for baking this cake. I have used classic coffee cup from Homecentre for baking these chocolate mug cakes. This is a perfect evening snack or even makes an amazing breakfast-on-the-go!
