It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Spoiling your New Year’s Resolution, already

Cup o’cake! Really!

4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
A small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well.
Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.

Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.


Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.


The cake may rise over the top of the mug, but don’t be alarmed. (Mine didn’t. Depends on how large your large mug is, I guess.)

Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired. EAT!

Emma and I shared. It was very yummy.

  1. This sounds perfect for the type of chocolate cravings I get (I prefer baked goods to candy) – easy, quick, and just enough for me :-). Thanks for sharing, and Happy New Year!

    Quick, easy, and I shared mine with Emma, and neither of us felt deprived. Woo!

  2. Hmmm, I might substitute this for my morning coffee. There’s an egg in it so I could call it breakfast!

    What a neat idea, thanks.

    If coffee is your normal breakfast, then it’s just possibly arguable that this constitutes an improvement. Who’da thunk?

  3. Oh, I sooooooo didn’t need to be told how to make a choccy cake for one, in only a few minutes!

    Maybe the diet should start tomorrow……..

    I know. Isn’t it dreadful? But so good!

  4. You cannot even imagine how excited I am to try these.

    It requires just the right ammount of effort 😉

    Which is to say, virtually none. It’s a dangerous recipe!
