Solar Cooked Chocolate Mug Cake

We were inspired by the microwavable chocolate mug cake that we've modified the recipe and adapted it to solar cooking. We really like the idea of using a mug to mix the ingredients in and then baking right in it. It definitely won't be a 2 to 5 minute mug cake, but the texture & flavor is worth the wait.
