Try this free recipe – a quick & easy dessert – 5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake – for you & the kids.


4 Tablespoons cake flour

4 Tablespoons sugar

2 Tablespoons cocoa

1 Egg

3 Tablespoons milk

3 Tablespoons oil

3 Tablespoons chocolate drops (optional)

1 Mug

Here is what you do…:

Add dry ingredients to the mug, and mix well.

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 chocolate drops if you’ve got them, and a splash

of vanilla essence too.

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.

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.

Sit back and enjoy with a coffee – you deserve it!
