A really quick way to have chocolate cake for one person ( 2 if you feel like sharing). This recipe was given to my mom by a friend.


  • 4 Tbsp flour (self-rising)
  • 4 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbsp milk
  • 3 Tbsp oil
  • 3 Tbsp chocolate chips (optional)
  • A splash of vanilla extract
  • 1 large coffee mug


  • 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 and vanilla extract and mix again.
  • Put the 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, it should not overflow.
  • Allow to cool and tip out onto a plate if desired.
