Chocolate Mug Cake

Cook | Chocolate Mug Cake Recipe

I found this recipe on another NZ blog Monkey Makes Three  and it was perfect for a 9pm chocolate craving.  Lonely nights with Dave away just make me want to eat arggghhh.  And cook.  I think about cooking all the time.
Any way, back to the recipe.  I realise I may be a bit late to the party with mug cakes but how cool is a mug cake party any way?  Mum reckons it comes out like a steamed pudding, can’t say I’ve eaten too many of those but it’s a good quick fix for those lacking in chocolate supplies!

Serves 2

4 tbsp plain flour
4 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp cocoa
1 egg
3 tbsp milk
3 tbsp oil
3-4 tbsp dark chocolate chips
dash of vanilla

– Mix the dry ingredients together.

– Mix in the egg, milk, oil and vanilla. Stir in the chocolate chips.

– Evenly distribute mixture between 2 cups.

– Cook in the microwave on high for 2 minutes. Tip into a bowl and eat.

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
