5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

>>  Saturday, February 11, 2012

OK, this is Guiding heaven: a cake with hardly any mess that actually works.  The GuidingUK sheet for printing/sharing is here.

The recipe is:

4 tablespoons Self Raising flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
Small pinch of salt
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil or melted butter
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
a small splash of vanilla essence

Mix all the dry ingredients together.  Yes, the mug looks full, don't panic.
Mix in the egg.  I did it brownie style into a little ramikin in case I lost some shell and beat it a little before pouring into the mug.  Children will love this gloop stiring bit. 
Do not at this point confuse the tea cup with the cake cup, it does not taste good (yet).

Now mix in the milk and oil. Again I measured them into my ramikin first.  Then the essense and chocolate drops.

Put the mug on a plate and pop it into the microwave on full heat for 3 minutes.

The mug is hot when it comes out but the plate is fine to hold. I left it for about 20 seconds then ran a sharp knife around the edge, I'm not convinced it needed that though.

I held the mug by the handle and just turned it upside down and out it fell.  The white is where I hadn't quite stirred it properly on the edge.

It tasted lovely warm.

You could do one between 2 girls and just chop in in half, that would be plenty.

If you've got access to a microwave at your meeting place this has got to be one to go for.  If not how about on pack holiday, serve it with ice-cream or get them to ice it.


Guiding and Chocolate - come on, you know it doesn't get any better than that!
