Prep:3min  ›  Cook:2min  ›  Ready in:5min 

  1. First put the 2 tablespoons of sugar into a medium sized mug, then add the 2 tablespoons of self-raising flour (if you cant find any use 4 tablespoons of plain flour).
  2. Next, add the cocoa powder, then the egg; mix well. Add the oil and milk and mix well so there's no dry bits of flour or cocoa powder not mixed in.
  3. Put it in the microwave for 2 1/2 minutes. Take it out of the microwave when you see the cake rising over the cup and it stops rising.


You could also add some chocolate chips for a more chocolaty melty taste. Please review for this recipe and upload a picture of how it looked and give a rating on this recipe :)

This is brilliant! It tastes shop bought. If you microwave it for only 2 mins... Heaven on Earth!!! - 10 Jun 2013


Brilliant! Nothing in the house for the kids so I whipped this up. I love that no scales are required. I used olive oil instead of sunflower oil and this really tasted good as I had good quality cocoa powder in the cupboard. - 13 Oct 2013
