Magic chocolate mug cake!

This comes from the slightly odd source of the latest issue of ben and holly magazine! But it’s a fun little project to do with a child/ toddler and is a decent version of what it is, ie. a microwave cake. This took panther and I about 10 mins so it’s good for filling in time, or preparing a quick pudding. I’m not saying this is the tastiest cake ever, but we enjoyed it! These ingredients make one mug cake, and you need to use a small microwaveable mug. You do all the mixing in the mug so it’s very easy on the washing up! We were quite strict on amounts with it being so small, as I thought it would be easier to ruin, so I used a proper tbs/ tsp measurement.

3 tbs plain flour
2 1/2 tbs caster sugar
2 tbs cocoa
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
3 tbs oil
3 tbs milk

Sir the dry ingredients together in the mug
Add the wet ingredients and stir until the lumps have gone
Microwave on high for 2 mins

The magazine suggests adding chopped nuts or chocolate chips after the second stage, which we might try next time. It also suggests serving with ice cream which I would definitely do if we were having it for pudding, which is actually what we will probably do next time.
