If you are anything like me, once the kids are in bed and I am settling in for some me time in front of the TV, I start to crave something sweet and this chocolate Mug Cake does the trick. I love this dessert as I don't have to make a whole cake and eat a whole cake and its ready in 3 minutes < genius!

 You will need:

 Cake

  • 3 tablespoons self raising flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons oil

Icing

  • 4 Squares of Cooking milk chocolate
  • Dash of coconut oil < optional

Method

  1. Add dry ingredients to a large mug, and mix well.
  2. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
  3. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
  4. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 2 minutes on high, check your cake you may need another minute depending on your microwave, be careful not to overcook it or you will have a dry cake.
  5. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, this is normal.
  6. While the cake is cooking, work on your icing, add the chocolate into a microwavable bowl with a dash of oil, microwave on high for 20 - 35 seconds.
  7. Once cake is cooked pour chocolate over the top.
  8. You can flip the cake out into a bowl and eat with ice cream or cream or eat straight out of the mug.
