Mug Shot

I was going through my recipe book today and found this handy little thing! It’s midnight, and I’m really craving dessert. Given that this is Australia…well, let’s just say that it’s a little hard to find past midnight places in the suburbs (unless you’re craving kebabs).

Oh, and I also try not to keep ice cream at home – it’s just too convenient and we usually go through a tub really quickly. So what’s a girl to do? Answer: Chocolate Mug Cake!

Chocolate Mug Cake:

4 tbsp self raising flour
4 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 egg
3 tbsp milk
3 tbsp oil
3 tbsp chocolate chips
A splash of vanilla essence

Add dry ingredients to a mug and mix. Add the egg, and mix well. Pour in milk and oil and mix well. Fold in chocolate chips and a splash of vanilla essence. Microwave on HIGH for 3 min (1000 watt).

It’s absolutely brilliant!! Really convenient when you feel like cake but can’t be bothered to bake a full on one. =)

Happy munching!
