make mine a mug of chocolate cake!!

You know how it is when your kids want something cakey, and you don't have anything in? Well we found this fantastic recipe HERE. The best thing about it is all the measurements are tablespoons, so the kids can easily do it themselves. It makes enough for two, but would you share??
I have copied the recipe here

Saw this recipe and have tried it - very quick and pretty good very quick cake! I found 1 cake enough for 2 people when I made it with SR flour.

Just need this recipe and a mug and a microwave!


  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips
  • splash vanilla or other flavoring - try peppermint or cinnamon!
  • Technique

    • Add all of the dry ingredients to the mug and mix.
    • Add the egg and combine well. It gets pretty pasty at the point.
    • Stir in milk and oil.
    • Add chocolate chips* and splash of vanilla. Stir well.
      *if you don't have chocolate chips, try a broken up candy bar - I can't stress how much this amps the awesomeness of your cake
    • Microwave for 3 minutes in a 1000w oven, or 4 minutes in a 700w oven.
      It will start to crown over the top of the mug. Don't panic! It will collapse once the heat stops
    • Enjoy! (OK wait for it to cool down a bit) Yummy hot or cold!
