Making a Chocolate Mug Cake

A couple of months ago, I purchased Alfie Deyes' 'Pointless Book'. On one of the pages it has a Chocolate Mug Cake Recipe.

I love making and eating cake, so when one can be made easily and take only about 4 minutes to cook, I am all for it.

You will need:

4 tbsp Self-Raising Flour
2 tbsp Cocoa Powder 
4 tbsp Caster Sugar
3 tbsp Milk
1 Medium Egg
3 tbsp Vegetable/ Sunflower Oil
A Few Drops of Vanilla Essence
2 tbsp Chocolate Chips
1 Big Mug or 2 Small Mugs

I didn't have any chocolate chips, so instead I used fudge chunks, which worked really well.
The mug I used wasn't big enough to fit all of the ingredients in, so I used two instead.

First of all, you need to combine the flour, caster sugar and cocoa powder in the mug.

After that, you need to add the egg and dividing one egg between two mugs is a lot harder than you might think. Then mix it well.

Then add the milk, vegetable oil and vanilla essence. Mix this and once it is smooth, add the chocolate chips (or in my case fudge chunks).

Finally, you need to put it in the microwave for around 4-5 minutes, on the highest setting. Keep an eye to make sure it doesn't overflow.

Once it is finished in the microwave, it is ready to eat.

I love this recipe. It was delicious and so easy and I am definitely going to make it again.

Let me know if you have ever made this before or if you try it out.
