Chocolate Mug Cake for Two

01 June, 2011

I probably should not have been introduced to this, coz it's very very dangerous! I always have the ingredients in the house and it takes literally minutes before you're eating delicious warm cake. Evil. Especially when you're trying to lose weight like I am.    :)

    • 4 tablespoons flour
    • 5 tablespoons sugar
    • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
    • Pinch of salt
    • 1 egg (lightly beaten)
    • 3 tablespoons milk
    • 3 tablespoons melted butter/oil
    • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips plus extra for sprinkling
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


    Serves: 2
    1. First add the flour, sugar and cocoa into the mugs or the bowl; mix well.
    2. Add the milk, butter/oil, chocolate chips and vanilla extract and stir well. Add the beaten egg.
    3. Sprinkle with some chocolate chips and cover with a microwave proof cling film.
    4. Microwave on medium-high for 1 minute and then for another 30 seconds. It should be cooked but moist and gooey in the middle.
    5. Allow to cool and eat greedily with some cream or ice cream.
