Written by Louise Winter

Looking for a yummy chocolatey treat?
This mug cake will be quick to cook and even quicker to eat!
You can bake this in a microwave in a cup,
And what’s even better – it’ll save washing up!

You will need the largest mug you can find to avoid microwave spillages!


3 tablespoons of self-raising flour
3 tablespoons of caster sugar
2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
1 medium egg
2 tablespoons of milk
2 tablespoons oil

Optional extras: vanilla essence (or whichever flavour you prefer), chocolate chips, raisins, nuts, crumbled biscuits etc…

How to make:

Add the sugar, cocoa powder and flour into the mug and mix well.
Break the egg into the mix and combine all wet ingredients with the dried ingredients.
Add any other optional ingredients you desire.
Place your mug in the centre of the microwave and cook for 4 minutes, or until it’s risen and firm to touch.
It will rise as it cooks so keep an eye on it.
It really is that easy, enjoy!
