5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

    13 mins

    This is the treat my children love to make themselves after a good term at school or when they have a friend staying. One cake is big enough to share between 2 children if you can convince them of it!!!

    Serves: 1 

    • 4 tablespoons flour
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 2 tablespoons cocoa
    • 1 egg

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:3min  ›  Ready in:13min 

    1. Add dry ingredients to the mug, and mix well.
    2. Crack an egg and add it to your mug. Be sure to mix it well to avoid any pockets of flour in the corners. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the vanilla essence.
    3. Pop your mug into the microwave & zap for 3 minutes on maximum power (1000watt). Wait until the cake stops rising, and sets in the mug.
    4. If necessary, run a knife around the sides of the mug, and tip the still warm cake out of the mug and onto a saucer.
