We all love yummy chocolate gooey treats especially during the winter months.But as a not so keen baker I tend to shy away from baking and often just buy some treats.
Over the weekend I spent time trolling my Facebook feed and found a recipe and I amo most defiantely going to make …… at some point . The reasons I love this recipe and have saved it is:
a) it takes 5 minutes only
b) I have all these ingredients at home .
c) I can make individual portions.
d) It can be made in the microwave.
However be WARNED ! This is the most dangerous cake recipe in the world? Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night
4 tbsp. flour
4 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. cocoa
3 tbsp. milk
3 tbsp. oil
A small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
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! Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
Serve on its own with a dollop of fresh cream , custard or icecream!
Do let me know if you try this out 🙂
