  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons whisked egg (a full egg is too much)
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter/vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips
  • splash of vanilla or peppermint

Ensure you measure all ingredients precisely – as the amounts are so small a little bit either way will make a big difference. Add dry ingredients to a large mug and mix. Add egg and combine well. Stir in milk and butter or oil. Add chocolate chips or crushed chocolate confectionary bar. Microwave for 3 minutes on high. The trick is to let it get as big and round at the top of the mug as possible while it is cooking without letting it drop over the sides to become an oopsy doops in the microwave. Good luck!

    For those who think the sugar content is too much how about trying Stevia.?

    thanks for the reminder unicorn, i did cut the sugar content down to only a 1tblspn of logicone sugar and it was quiet good/for the price you pay for Stevia i wouldn't use it again, because apparently i found out its half sugar anyway. cheers all i did this in 3 mins in my micro it was good

    If the measurements need to be precise, is the tablespoon measure the Australian (20ml) or US (15ml) measure? Or does it not matter, since all the measurements are in tablespoons, so the proportions will be the same?

    Here we go again.(American ?) What flour is used. I presume it is plain, because I don't think they know what self raising flour is.
