I came across a recipe on a another wordpress blog and was really taken with it. It’s an easy peasy microwave chocolate cake – in a mug – all done in 5 minutes! The author of this blog adapted her recipe from an original gluten free recipe. If you want the gluten free version, then click here. I can’t wait to try it out for myself.
50g dark chocolate
3 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons plain flour
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons milk
- Melt the butter and chocolate in a double boiler. Set aside to cool.
- Add flour and sugar to a small mixing bowl, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and mix well. Add the melted chocolate and mix again.
- Pour the mixture into a large microwavable coffee mug. Microwave for 2 minutes on medium, 1 minute on high. It should be cooked (skewer test comes out with moist crumbs), but still a little moist. Remember, it will continue to cook while standing.
- Allow to cool a little
*The recipe above included cinamon but I am going to leave that out for my own version. I googled chocolate mug cake and there seems to be plenty of versions online if you want to try another – some include oil instead of butter.
