  • 1 tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 1 tbsp Milk

20g of Good Quality Dark Chocolate + extra for serving.

  • * whipped cream to serve is optional


  • STEP 1
    This Recipe is so easy, all you have to remember is 2 spoons of the dry ingredients and 1 spoon of wet.
  • STEP 2
    Grate the chocolate and whisk all the ingredients together in a large mug. (A fork works just as well as a whisk.)
  • STEP 3
    Once well combined put the mug into the microwave for 2 minutes. Keep an eye on it though, as it is prone to over flowing :)
  • STEP 4
    Remove from the microwave, puncture with a fork and leave to sit for 30 second. You can eat the cake straight from the mug or, Using a flat knife go around the edges to separate the cake from the mug before tipping it out onto a plate for serving. Grate on the left over chocolate and spoon on the whipped cream.
