  • Caster Suger – 4 Tbl spoon

  2. Add the egg and mix it. Make sure there are no lumps in it.
  3. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
  4. Add the chocolate chip (if you like)
  5. Add vanilla extract and mix it again.
  6. Put your mug in microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 Watts (Just simple Microwave it and it will be cooked up)
  7. The cake will rise over to the top of the mug but don’t be alarmed.
  8. Allow it to cool a little and tip out onto a plate if desired…
  9. And serve the cake with ice-cream and chocolate syrup or maybe Nutella. Add some Chocolate Chips on top of it.

Do not overbake cake otherwise it will become hard. Set the microwave temperature for your microwave speed. In my microwave 3 minutes cake is ready. In some microwaves, 2 minutes are enough.

      Same here. When I have no cake or cookies at home to go with my coffee/tea then I straight go for a Mug Cake with Nutella on Top.
