So a little while ago I told you of my adventures of making my first mug cake. I decided the other day to make another one, trying a similar recipe but with cocoa powder this time instead of milk chocolate. It’s safe to say that I preferred this one!
2 tbsp caster sugar (although I’ve used granulated and it works just fine)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp cocoa powder
4 tbsp plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
- Melt the butter in a mug in the microwave (should take around 30 seconds)
- Mix in the egg, flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and vanilla extract one at a time. I recommend adding the egg first so you can whisk it up properly, but make sure you’ve let the butter cool a little first. Also a note here I recommend adding a drop of milk, as the mix is a bit stiff and hard to mix so I think some milk would make it easier.
- Microwave for approximately 1min 20 on high power and then eat pretty much straight away 🙂
There we have it a chocolate mug cake! 🙂 It won’t win any prizes for presentation but it tastes great 🙂 Let me know if you try it!
