A rich chocolate cake topped with a light and fluffy cannoli icing. Perfection in a mug. Specifically, a Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cannoli Mug Cake.
My love of cannoli goes back over 20 years. My best friend and I used to splurge and get them from the bakery closest to her house and then walk the mile back waiting in anticipation to dig in.
For my birthdays I always asked for cannoli cake. The only thing cannoli about it was the filling and the mini cannoli stuck on top but it was my favorite anyway.
When I made Whipped Cannoli Mousse last week I knew I wanted to try it as a cake icing. I didn’t have enough left to ice an entire cake but I had plenty for a mug cake.
Brenda over at Sugar Free Mom has a recipe for a white Cannoli Mug Cake for Two. If white cake is more your style check out her recipe.
I ate this whole thing for lunch. It was awesome. But it was very filling. If you are planning on having it for dessert after a meal it is shareable.
