How to make it

  • 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 (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again. Put your 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! Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired. EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous ;-)
  • The pic shows one cooked in the bush whilst camping - they rise twice as high in a microwave!

    I just had to try this and it actually works. Amazing and really is a pretty good cake. I added a little Hersheys chocolate syrup over the top but thats just my sweet tooth talking. thanks
