About this recipe: An easy peasy chocolate cake in a cup made in the microwave. Takes just 10 minutes and the result is a lovely sponge cake!

Serves: 4 

  • 4 tablespoons self raising flour
  • 4 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons semi-skimmed milk
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 drops vanilla extract
  • handful chocolate chips

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:10min 

  1. Put the sugar, flour and cocoa powder in a mug and stir round.
  2. Add the egg, it will look gloopy and thick at this stage but that is fine.
  3. Next add the milk and oil and stir with a fork, this will make it look very runny.
  4. Then add the vanilla and chocolate chips and stir.
  5. Place in the microwave and cook on full power for about 3 1/2 minutes or until firm. Cool and then tuck in!
