Chocolate Mug Cake

This chocolate cake takes seconds to cook in the microwave but don't let that put you off, it is exactly like proper cake, though it is more calorific than your average slice! It is packed with chocolaty goodness and full of flavour, you could even add you favourite flavourings such as peppermint or orange.

Method

1. Mix together flour, cocoa and sugar in a large mug.

2. Beat in the egg, oil and milk until you get a glossy, smooth mix. Add in a few drops of any flavourings if you wish to make something a little different from a plain chocolate cake, peppermint or orange flavourings both work well.

3. Stir in the chocolate chips and then place in the microwave for 4-5 minutes until cooked (stick a skewer or knife in the middle, it should come out clean)

4. Top with some grated chocolate (or even some marshmallows or chocolate sauce!)
