Chocolate Mug Cake


Quick, easy and habit forming comfort food. Don't make the mistake of eating them every day like I did as they are not good for the waistline.


  • Makes: 1 Large portion

  • Preparation time: 10 minutes

  • Cooking time: 3 Minutes


  • 4 Tbsp Sugar

  • 4 Tbsp Self Raising Flour

  • 2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder

  • 3 Tbsp Milk

  • 3 Tbsp Sunflower Oil

  • 1 Egg


  1. Add all of the ingrediets into your large microwave safe mug or (even better) cereal bowl. Adding the sugar first will stop the flour from sticking to the bottom.

  2. Mix thoroughly.

  3. Microwave on full power for 2.5 to 3 minutes (until for to the touch, be careful as it is hot).

Tip: Some or all of the cocoa powder can be changes for other dry ingredients such as coconut, chocolate chips or chopped nuts. Flavourings such as almond or vanilla essence can also be added. Crunchy peanut butter also goes well but if you are adding it reduce the oil to 1 or 2 Tbsp.
