The last couple of weeks at uni I’ve really fancied making a cake… But I don’t have anything here so decided to reach a compromise and try making a mug cake!
I’ve never made a mug cake before (I’m not sure why) so this is my first ever attempt and I’m proud to say it didn’t explode!
I used the chocolate cake recipe from here 🙂
30g milk chocolate
2 tbsp caster sugar (although I used granulated sugar)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
4 1/2 tbsp plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
A mug that holds at least 350ml!
- In the mug melt together the chocolate and butter (about 30 seconds) and then mix together with a fork until smooth.
- Allow the mixture to cool slightly so you don’t scramble the egg when you add it!
- One by one, add the egg, sugar, vanilla extract, flour and baking powder, mixing after adding each ingredient.
- Mix well, but not too much! And then microwave for around 1 min 30, but don’t be tempted to overcook it.
I microwaved mine with the mug standing inside the bowl to make it easier to clean up if it overflowed! You can check it is cooked by sticking a knife in the middle.
So it doesn’t look that good, but it tasted great. If it anything it was a little dry, but I think that’s because I overcooked it. But nothing that some cream/ice cream/custard/chocolate sauce wouldn’t sort out!
Also it’s one heck of a lot of cake! I struggled to finish it all!
Have you ever tried making a mug cake? If so how did you get on? 🙂 Or if you try this recipe let me know how you get on too 🙂
See you again soon! 🙂
