Student Baking? a piece of cake.


In all it's glory... the 5 minute chocolate mug cake.

Fancy a treat?  Don’t you just fancy a huge slice of chocolate cake ? Why not have a crack at possibly the easiest cake recipe EVER. To make it even easier for you here is a step by step guide to chocolate cake heaven. I accept I am not in the league of pudding king James Martin but what do you expect in just 5 minutes? I have to be honest and say that I have never been a fan of microwave cooking but this 5 minute chocolate mug cake actually bakes a treat.

INGREDIENTS

4  TABLESPOONS OF FLOUR

4 TABLESPOONS OF SUGAR

2 TABLESPOONS OF COCOA POWDER

3 TABLESPOONS OF MILK

3 TABLESPOONS OF COOKING OIL

1 FREE RANGE EGG

1 TEASPOON OF VANILLA ESSENCE

GENEROUS HANDFUL OF CHOCOLATE CHIPS

1 CAN OF SQUIRTY CREAM (OPTIONAL)

Ingredients should look something like this.

METHOD

MIX THE FLOUR SUGAR AND COCOA POWDER IN A MICROWAVABLE MUG/CUP. ADD THE EGG, MILK AND OIL.

ADD THE VANILLA ESSENCE AND MIX WELL. ADD CHOCOLATE CHIPS !

MIX IN THOSE CHOCOLATE CHIPS. COOK ON FULL POWER FOR 3 MINUTES

SERVE BAKED CAKE ON TO PLATES AND SCOOSH WITH SQUIRTY CREAM AND SERVE WITH A GENEROUS CUP OF TEA.

TOP TIPS

– Try serving with tinned fruit and ice cream to make it special.

For a chocolate minty flavour add peppermint essence instead of vanilla.

– Remember that your cake will rise during the cooking process

so choose your mug wisely.

    Martin, i like how you take time off from being a student to make a beautiful cake like this. However, I’m going to challenge you with a piece of carrot cake.
