Microwave Chocolate Mug Cake


Mug cake:

⅓ cup all-purpose flour

2 tbsp sugar

2 tbsp brown sugar

2 tbsp cocoa powder

¼ tsp salt

¼ tsp baking powder

¼ cup milk

1 medium egg

¼ cup vegetable oil

½ tsp vanilla

¼ cup milk chocolate chips


1 tbsp cream or milk

3 tbsp milk or dark chocolate chips


Choose a large mug and grease it well with butter.

Sift together flour, white and brown sugar, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder. Stir in milk, egg, oil and vanilla. Fold in chocolate chips.

Fill ⅔ of mug with batter, leaving room for your cake to rise. Microwave on ‘high’ for 2 minutes — don’t peek!

For the ganache, combine milk and chocolate chips in a small bowl. Heat in the microwave on ‘high’ in intervals of 20 seconds stirring after each interval until the chocolate chips melt and the consistency is smooth.

Pour ganache on top of cake. Sprinkle on coarse salt to taste. Add a scoop of your favourite ice cream, return to bed and be prepared to share.
