5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE (posted on Ravelry by Gadgetgirlnz)
4 tablespoons cake flour(that’s plain flour, not self-raising)
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
1 tbs oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips(optional)
small splash of vanilla essence
1 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 essence, and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts. 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.
I think I'm in love with this recipe... it's magic how the cake just pops out of the mug after cooking!
