Chocolate cake in a mug

This is another recipe that I ve always bookmarked. And the day I saw @ Collaborative Curry; I decided not to bookmark it again but try it out at that moment. Yeah I made this long back and it now that my cake got a chance to take a place here. Thanks for the wonder recipe Nami..



All purpose flour         --   5 tbsp
Granulated sugar       --   5 tbsp
Cocoa                               --   2 tbsp
Salt                                    --   a pinch
Baking powder            --   1/2 tsp
Egg                                    --   1 large
Milk                                   --   4 tbsp
Vegetable oil                 --   4 tbsp
Pure vanilla extract   --   1 tsp

Preparation of the cake:

Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Beat the eggs in a another bowl. Add other wet ingredients and mix it well until they are blended together. Now add the dry ingredients and mix well.


Pour the batter into 2 tall microwave safe coffee mugs,half - filled. If you have short mugs you can use 3. I had one tall mug in which it came out perfect and the other was a bit short and the cake overflowed :), as you can see.


Microwave the mugs,one at a time for a minute. If it does not get done in a minute, keep for another 20-30 seconds. Make sure you do not overcook. Mine came out in 1 min and 10 sec. Let it cool and then enjoy.
