Why I Love This Recipe

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.

Ingredients You'll Need

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.
