Tasty Thursdays

Yes, it's Thursday again, so time for another recipe for you to try. After last week's fiddly recipe, I'm going to share with you something that's really quick and easy for those times which you want cake and you want it NOW!

Five minute chocolate mug cake
You will need:

  • 1 mug
  • 4 tablespoons plain flour
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa (don't use hot chocolate powder like I did, it doesn't taste great!)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • Optional extras: chocolate chips, peanut butter, jam, nutella etc
  • Optional: cream to serve


  1. Mix dry ingredients together with a fork.
  2. Add the egg, and mix well.
  3. Add the milk and oil, and mix well.
  4. Add in any optional extras.
  5. Microwave on 1000 watts for three minutes. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, so don't be alarmed!
  6. Leave to cool for 2 minutes.
  7. Add cream if desired. Enjoy!


  1. Sounds fab!! I have everything except for the cocoa - i only have hot choc :s
