Feeling too lazy to make a dessert, make these, you can even top with ice cream if you wanted.
4 Tbsp plain flour
4 Tbsp caster sugar
2 Tbsp cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
3 Tbsp whole milk
3 Tbsp oil (I used olive oil, but any will do)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1tsp butter or margarine (optional)
3Tbsp chocolate chips (optional)
I know a lot of people mix theirs right in the mug, but its less messy if you mix it up in a small bowl then spoon it into the mugs, yes, this makes 2 cakes in a mug, you also get a lot more cake than if you were having a cup cake, and because of that I now don’t want my dinner
Combine all ingredients together in your bowl.
Mix with a fork until well combined.
Pour or spoon an even amount of mixture into each mug.
Cover each mug with cling film.
Microwave for 60 – 65 seconds for each. Cook each mug separately and remember they will continue to cook a touch more on standing, touch the centre and if it’s firm then your cakes are done. Try not to overcook these or they will go rubbery (the perils of the microwave!)
