Cake in a Mug

Ever wish you had some cake in the cupboard for a quick snack?
You know in the evening when you really shouldn't be eating......
Here's something quick and really delicious just for those times....

5 Minute Chocolate Cake in A Mug

You'll need.....

4 tablespoons cake flour
4 tablespoons of sugar
2 tablespoons of cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons of milk
3 tablespoons of oil
3 tablespoons of chocolate drops ( optional)
1 Very large Mug

here's what you do...
Add dry ingredients to the mug, and mix well.
Crack an egg and add it to your mug.
Be sure to mix it well to avoid and pockets of flour in the corners/
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
Add the chocolate drops if you've got them, and a splash of vanilla essence too!!

Pop your mug into the microwave and zap for 3 minutes   1.5 minutes on max power.
Wait until the cake stops rising and sets in the mug.
If necessary, run a knife around the sides of the mug, and tip the still warm cake out of the mug and onto a saucer.......or eat straight from the mug with a spoon.!!!
Meg and a school friend made these for afternoon tea yesterday....and finished eating them for desert!
