  • 4 tbs self raising flour
  • 4 tbs caster sugar
  • 2 tbs cocoa powder
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbs milk
  • 3 tbs sunflower oil
  • 3 tbs choc chips optional
  • dash of vanilla extract
  • 1 large coffee mug mine was a tad small - High School Musical not best choice!
  • Double cream creme fraiche - optional for serving


  • Put all the dry ingredients into your mug and mix like mad. Now add the egg and mix again. Then add the milk and oil and really mix like mad, get that oil everywhere in the mug. Now add the dash of vanilla extract, choc chips or any other little extra you can think of.
  • Put mug in microwave and cook for 3 minutes (in a 1000 watt oven).
