Healthy Microwave Mug Chocolate Fondant Cake

Created by Sophie

A quick, healthy but indulgent microwave mug chocolate fondant cake. Perfect for a quick dessert. There's far less sugar in this than most cake recipes, and if you use olive oil spread, it's even healthier. The chocolate is optional.

    Great dessert considering it only takes a few minutes to create! Definitely needs the cream of ice cream, but a delicious combination.
