    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!
