Chocolate Cake in a Mug recipe

Need cake but do not want to wait for the oven to heat up and then wait for your bake - the answer you need is Cake in a Mug recipe! In just over the time it takes to make yourself a cup of tea or a hot chocolate, you can have homemade cake. Technically my cake is in a cup and not a mug, this I know, but the cake inside is just the same whether it be a mug or cup.

Recipe: Hot Chocolate Cake in a Mug 

1 egg
2 oz self raising flour
2 oz butter softened
2 oz caster sugar
replace 1 teaspoon on flour with cocoa powder

Mix the ingredients above well so they are well combined, the ingredients above are sufficient for one mug or two smaller cups. If you do not want chocolate cake then do not replace the flour with cocoa.
Fill your cup half full with mixture
Depending on the power of your microwave and the size of your mug/cup cook on high for one minute to two and a half minutes. Just keep checking, you do not want to overcook your cake!

The perfect cake in a cup recipe
Decorate with a swirl of fresh cream, top with a cherry and a grating of dark chocolate. I find this type of cake best served whilst still slightly warm.
