Mug cake, Just a fad or the next best thing?

Hey guys, So lately I've been seeing so many posts and videos about Mug cakes and how good they are so I thought I would give it a try! Just in case your not familiar with one of these, Its basically a cake mix shortened down to a 1 person serving size and cooked for 3 minutes. Perfect for last minute deserts if your planned one goes wrong! Here im going to show you how to make it and my verdict!
Also really quick I want to give a BIG shout out to my good friend Julia who has just started a blog, Please go check out her blog and give your support!

Mug cake!!

You will need ....

Mug
4 tbsp self raising  flour
4 tbsp caster sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 medium egg
3 tbsp milk
3 tbsp vegetable/sunflower oil
A few drops vanilla
2 tbsp chocolate chips/nuts/raisins etc (optional)

Step 1

Okay so your going to want to go ahead and add all your dry ingredients and give them a good mix!



Step 2

Next add all your wet ingredients, but not your optional extras! 




Step 3

Throw your optional ingredients in and the pop it in the microwave for 3 minutes checking it every 1 minute.

Step 4

Grab it out the microwave *caution its hot* and add a topping if you like such as icing or cream ect.



Step 5

Im giving this mug cake a 3.5/5, Its not the best thing ive tried but it fills a hole and is perfect for an emergency dinner party dessert!
Hope you enjoyed this little cooking post 
Lots of Love..... Izzy
