Appologies if you love this like I do!
Ever had a craving for chocolate or pudding pudding while you are watching a favourite tv show at night? Sometimes though, the idea of 'throwing together' a chocolate cake and actually waiting for it to cook puts you off. Well, here comes the appology. I am sorry folks, with this post you are now 5 minutes away from individual size
chocoalte cakes/ puddings.
Chocoalte Cake in a Mug:
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg 3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
A small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug
Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts (high). The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed! Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).
My cake was slightly dry (but still delicious) so in my microwave I would cut the cooking time down to 2.5 minute and maybe see where it is at that point next time. We topped it off with icecream, but i would love to play around with the flavours. I reckon you could add lots off extras to change the flavours to choc cherry, choc caramel, choc baileys or choc mint maybe??? Mmmmmm.....YUM!
