Microwave Chocolate Mug Cake

AuthorKarenDifficultyBeginner

Microwave chocolate mug cake that is super easy to make and very fun to make with toddlers and kids.

Yields1 Serving
 4 tbsp plain flour
 ¼ tsp baking powder
 3 tbsp sugar (caster sugar is best)
 2 tbsp cocoa powder
 1 egg
 3 tbsp sour cream
 3 tbsp sunflower oil or neutral vegetable oil (olive oil is too strong but okay if you don't have anything else)
 Dash of vanilla paste (you can use essence or extract/essence instead)
 2 tbsp white chocolate chips (you can also add chopped nuts or dried fruit)
1

Add the plain flour, baking powder sugar, and cocoa powder into your largest mug. What I find helpful is to store this mix in a small jar so you have prepped this step for an even speedier microwave cake.

2

Add the egg and mix.

3

Add the sour cream, oil, and vanilla paste and mix into a paste. Now add any extras you may have.

4

Put the mug in the microwave and cook on high for 1 minute. Now stop, take a quick look at the cake and now cook in 30 second increments up to a maximum of two minutes. It's really important you don't overcook the cake or it becomes rubbery - that's why I recommend cooking in 30 second increments and even stopping before then to check. As all microwaves are different, this requires a little bit of judgement to get right.

5

Tip the cake out on a plate and serve plain or with sour cream/ice cream and fruits.

Delicious!
