Super easy
Whip up this quick microwave mug cake in seconds. And you only need 6 ingredients!


30g butter

1 egg

2 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons coco powder

4 tablespoons plain flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Let's Cook:

Put the butter in a mug and microwave it for around 30 seconds (or until it's melted)

Grab a fork, and whisk in the egg, sugar, coco powder, flour and baking powder.

Once it's combined, put the mug back in the microwave for 1 minute (for 800Ws)

Take it out (be careful, the might be pretty hot), and leave to cool for a minute before digging in!

Totally optional, but you can decorate with extra coco powder, icing or sprinkles if you want.
