This is not a Christmas pudding!

It’s a feel good treat. . . a yummy chocolate cake in a mug kind of treat.


Well, if like me you spent too long looking for a car park. . . just to run into the shops to get 3 things, then spent another hour trying to get served and get back to your car . . . you might want a feel good yummy chocolaty treat too!!

It’s the perfect pick-me-up after hectic Christmas shopping.

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.

Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (optional) and vanilla, and mix again.

Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes on high.

The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!

Allow to cool for a few minutes, turn out onto a plate if desired.

Eat with cream, ice cream or your favourite cake sauce. . . I topped mine with cream and crushed candy cane.
