Homemade Mug Cake!

Step 1: Dry Ingredients
Step 2: Mix into wet ingredients 
Step 3: Microwave into pure heaven!

I know it's incredibly easy to google a recipe for mug cake (though nothing is as sinfully delicious and rich as the store bought one from a box) but here's my personal favourite.

Dry Ingredients:
3 tbs Flour
3 tbs Sugar
2 tbs Cocoa
1/4 tsp baking powder
Pinch of Salt
As many chocolate chips as your heart desires.

Wet Ingredients:
1 Egg
2 tbs Milk
2 tbs Oil
Splash of vanilla extract

- Chocolate chips (highly recommended!)
- Instant espresso powder
- Almond or mint extract

Pretty standard, simply combine your ingredients in a big fat mug! I prefer to mix the wet separately to ensure the egg is throughly distributed, and then try not to over-mix the batter -- that's never good! Finally, microwave for 2 1/2 - 3 mins :) I use 2 1/2, by the way. Let it cool for a few mins and transfer onto a plate if you wish.


ps. Yes, it does kind of explode over the top of the mug in an awesome way :)
