Chocolate Mugs

These to-die-for five-minute pudding cakes are splendid for whiling away cold winter evenings cuddled up on the couch.


  • 5 tbsp (75ml) self-raising cake flour
  • 2 tbsp (30ml) each castor sugar and cocoa powder
  • 6 blocks good-quality dark chocolate, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp (45ml) milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tbsp (45ml) vegetable oil


  • Combine flour, castor sugar, cocoa and chocolate in a mixing bowl.
  • Make a well, add milk, egg and oil and mix well.
  • Pour batter into a 400ml mug and microwave on high for 1 minute. ┬áCheck contents haven’t spilled over, then microwave for a further minute.
  • Tip out onto a plate or eat straight from the mug!
