Prep: 5 Minutes | Cook: 2 Minutes | Easy Recipe | Serves 1

Ingredients


  • 4 tbsp self-raising flour

  • 4 tbsp caster sugar

  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder

  • 1 medium egg

  • 3 tbsp milk

  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil or sunflower oil

  • a few drops of vanilla essence or other essence (orange or peppermint work well)

  • 2 tbsp chocolate chips, nuts, or raisins etc (optional)


Method

Add 4 tbsp self-raising flour, 4 tbsp caster sugar and 2 tbsp cocoa powder to the largest mug you have (to stop it overflowing in the microwave) and mix.


Add 1 medium egg and mix in as much as you can, but don't worry if there's still dry mix left.


Add the 3 tbsp milk, 3 tbsp vegetable or sunflower oil and a few drops of vanilla essence and mix until smooth, before adding 2 tbsp chocolate chips, nuts, or raisins, if using, and mix again.


Centre your mug in the middle of the microwave oven and cook on High for 1½ -2 mins, or until it has stopped rising and is firm to the touch.
