Microwave Mug cake! || Blogtober

So you've been at work all day, it's been busy, stressful with all the work things you had to be getting on with at work (Does that even make sense?) So what better thing to do than sit down, mooch in front of the tele and nom nom nom on some cake, and even better! - It's in your favourite mug! The recipe below will make one chocolate mug cake and you can tweak it however much you like to make it perfect.

All you will need is; 

4 tbsp Self raising flower
4 tbsp Caster sugar
2 tbsp Cocoa powder
1 Medium egg
3 tbsp Milk
3 tbsp Vegie/Sun flower oil
A few drops of vanilla essence (or any other you want to use; orange, peppermint, etc)
2 tbsp Chocolate chips

And now for the fun part, the method!

1. Using the largest mug you possibly own, to avoid it over flowing in the micro wave.

2. Add the flour, sugar and cocoa powder to the mug and mix all together.

3. Add the egg to the mixture, try and mix it all together as much as you can!

4. Add all other ingredients apart from the chocolate chips and mix until smooth. Once this is done you can then add the chocolate chips and mix again.

5. Place your mug in the middle of your microwave and cook on high for 4-5 minutes or until it has stopped rising and is firm to the touch. Watch the chocolaty goodness rise as it cooks!

And then for the fun part!

Leave too cool for a couple of minutes before devouring the chocolaty heaven in a cup, you want to enjoy it remember!?

Since it's October and all, I decided to decorate mine with orange and black sprinkles to go with a cute but spooky Halloween theme.

I hope you all enjoyed making this, I'd love to try out some new recipes so if you liked this one tweet me @upsidedowngecko and tell me what you'd like to see me make!
