Chocolate mug cakes for two

Today I am sharing with you one of my favourite quick dessert recipes.  I love to make this when I feel like something chocolatey, but don’t have the time or energy to make an entire chocolate cake.  This recipe makes two perfect portions of warm chocolate cake.  Here’s how it’s done:

Firstly, you’re going to need two medium sized mugs.  In the one mug, add 30ml butter and 60ml chocolate chips.  Toss it in the microwave for a minute or so and mix with a fork until it’s all melted and smooth.  In the other mug, use the same fork to beat one egg and 60ml sugar.  Your two mugs will look something like this:

Then add 30ml all purpose flour, half a teaspoon of vanilla essence and a pinch of salt to the egg mug.  Mix well, ensuring that there are no lumps.


Add the chocolate mixture to egg mug and mix until all is incorporated.  Divide the final batter between the two mugs evenly and sprinkle a few chocolate chips on top of each.  Now all you have to do is pop the mugs into the microwave for about two minutes.  Your result should be a light, spongy, moist cake in each mug.


Kick it up a notch and add some cream, ice cream or custard before digging in to deliciousness!
