You will need:

  • 4 tablespoons self raising flour
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips, or more if you want it reaallly chocolatey (optional)
  • A small splash of vanilla extract
  • 1 large coffee mug 
Now what?
  1. Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. 
  2. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. 
  3. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
  4. 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!
  5.  Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired or just eat it straight from the mug.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy.....if you want to try something a little different, why not experiment with some orange zest, a spoon of Nutella chocolate spread, berries, bananas...

Finish it off with some ice cream, whipped cream, golden syrup, icing or whatever else you come up with and enjoy!!!!!!
