Try our instant chocolate mug cake that'll literally take two minutes of your time to make.
3 tbsp milk of choice
3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp all-purpose flour
3 tbsp granulated sugar
2 tbsp cacao powder
1 tsp vanilla sugar
Melt butter in a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Mix the dry ingredients in a mug. Add the melted butter and milk and whisk with a fork until smooth.
Microwave for 1-1½ mins and voila enjoy your instant treat.
Please note that all microwaves are different, so it's difficult to give a precise cook time. The first time you try this recipe, start with 70 seconds, wait 1 minute while it cools, then check to see if the cake is set. Add an additional 15-25 seconds if needed and then allow it to rest in the microwave for 1 minute. Once you figure out the right setting and time for your microwave, you won't have to do this step again.
For a soft and spongey cake, stop cooking the cake earlier than you think because the cake will continue to cook as it cools.
