Chocolate cake for one

I have had this recipe for ages but have only just got around to trying it. It's a chocolate cake cooked in a coffee mug just for one person -I guess you could share if you want to, I didn't I ate the whole lot myself.

Here's how to make one-
1 large coffee mug
4tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons choc chips
splash vanilla

Add dry ingredients to mug and mix well. Make sure the measurements are level-not heaped. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
Add choc chips(if you want) and vanilla and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 mins on high(1000watts). Cake will rise over the top. Allow to cool a little and tip out onto a plate if desired (I ate mine from the cup)

Mine was a bit dry but I think that was because I ate too much before it was cooked so I only really had half the mixture left. Next time I might try to make it self saucing or have some cream with it. Thanks Heather xxx

Hi Carmel,
I didn't know you blogged! Anyone else in this town doing it?

Choccy cake looks very inviting, might try over the weekend for Brianna - serious choc-a-holic that girl!
