By sophiebk 03 Nov 2020

So we know some of you may already be long-time fans of this unbelievably simple recipe, but for others who haven't yet tried the delicacy ... we give you the Microwave Mug Cake! Perfect to warm you up after a cold day of Christmas shopping - see the ingredients and recipe below.


  1. Add 4 tbsp self-raising flour, 4 tbsp caster sugar and 2 tbsp cocoa powder to the largest mug you have (to stop it overflowing in the microwave) and mix.
  2. Add 1 medium egg and mix in as much as you can, but don't worry if there's still dry mix left.
  3. Add the 3 tbsp milk, 3 tbsp vegetable or sunflower oil and a few drops of vanilla essence and mix until smooth, before adding 2 tbsp chocolate chips, nuts, or raisins, if using, and mix again.
  4. Centre your mug in the middle of the microwave oven and cook on High for 1½ -2 mins, or until it has stopped rising and is firm to the touch.
