Five minute chocolate cake!

Blimey - if only I liked Chocolate cake, this would be great... but I can take it or leave it, it doesn't make a difference to me really.. BUT... as Katy sent me the recipe the other day, we just had to try it out.. my daughter being a little Gordon Ramsey and all (in more ways than one!)..

This is the recipe..


4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
a small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug

  • Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well.
  • Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
  • Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
  • Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
  • Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1 000 watts. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!
  • Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
  • EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).

    And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world? Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!

Now then.. for proof that we made it, here are some piccies.

The cup that we used is around 7 inches tall..
