1.This recipe makes two mug cakes so you’ll need to make them in two separate mugs. You can make the whole recipe in the mugs, except for the egg which you’ll need to whisk in a bowl. Add dry ingredients to the mugs, and mix well ensuring the there is no flour stuck at the bottom.
2.Pour in the milk, oil, chocolate chips or flakes, vanilla extract and mix well. Whisk egg lightly in a bowl and pour half of the egg in each mug and mix. Add the extra tablespoonful of chocolate chips or flakes on top of the batter. Cover with cling wrap.
Mixing dry ingredients
1.Do one mug at a time. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 1 minute on medium heat. Then microwave for another 30 seconds on medium heat. Check on the consistency-it should be cooked but still moist and gooey. If it is still not cooked, microwave on another 30 seconds on medium heat. Remember, it will cook further on standing.
2.Allow to cool a little and serve with ice cream.
