As a primary school teacher, I rarely have time to make a whole cake from scratch. A few months ago, I started my search to find a cake that I could make quickly when I was having one of my sweet cravings (I get these a lot!). I stumbled upon this recipe, adjusted it to the items I had available in my cupboard at the time and I have never looked back! This is definitely my go-to mug cake recipe, it’s moist, rich and super easy.
Chocolate Mug Cake (Adapted from Ree Drummond’s recipe – The Pioneer Woman – link to the original recipe below)
3 tablespoons Plain flour
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons sunflower oil
4 tablespoons semi-skimmed milk
I like to have my cake with a nice, cold glass of milk but the beauty of this recipe is that it can be adapted to suit you.
Variations (for when I’m feeling creative!):
Chocolate orange mug cake – use the zest of 1/2 an orange.
Chocolate peanut butter mug cake – add 1 tablespoon of peanut butter.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
Until next time..
