    Default 5 Minute chocolate mug cake

    Thought I'd share this...bloomin lovely and so easy. WE divided between 2 bowls the second time (and halved the cooking time for each) Nrxt time we'll put it in four ramekin bowls.... lovely warm with ice cream or custard x


    5 Minute chocolate mug cake

    4 tbls Self raising flour
    2 tbls cocoa
    3 tbls milk
    3 tbls chocolate chips (optional)
    4 tbls sugar
    1 egg
    3 tbls oil
    Splash of vanilla extract
    1 very large coffee mug

    - Add dry ingredients to mug and mix very well.
    - Add egg and mix thoroughly.
    - Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
    - Add chocolate chips if using and vanilla extract – mix well.
    - Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 2 minutes at 800 watts.
    - The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don’t be alarmed!
    - Allow to cool a little, and tip onto a plate if desired
    - EAT! (this can serve 2 if you like sharing)

    Really needs cream/ice-cream/custard/chocolate sauce to accompany for full effect!

    Why is this the most dangerous cake in the world?

    Because now you only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of day or night!!

    I've done this a few times since I saw the recipe. Good at the weekends when a Yoghurt just won't do!

    If you want a low fat version try this,

    1 egg
    1 tbsp cocoa powder
    3tbsp canderel sugar
    Mix all together in a ramekin dish ( or similar) until smoothish
    Microwave for 1 min
    Cool and eat!
    Probably not as good as the other one but only 1 sin on slimming world!!
