Yum in a mug...

So the other day I was rather hunger, craving something cakey and chocolatey... 
Thus came my decision to search for an easy to make cake...

And I stumbled across a beautiful self-saucing chocolate pudding in a mug...

It's very simple to make and tastes so good!

It did look a little concerning to start with, but the flavour totally outweighs the looks...

4 tbsp flour (I used self-raising) 
4 tbsp Sugar
2 tbsp Cocoa
1 egg
3 tbsp milk
3 tbsp oil
a dash of Vanilla Essence
3-4 tbsp chocolate chips
(I actually used chocolate buttons, which worked rather well, they were still a bit hard when I was eating the pudding... but delicious nonetheless)

So you begin by mixing the dry ingredients together (I mixed mine in a little plastic jug)
Then mix in the egg, milk, oil and vanilla essence, and add the chocolate chips.

I then poured the mixture into a reasonably sized mug (this could probably do two small servings)
and cook in the microwave for 2 minutes...

When done tip out into a bowl (it should slide out easily - well mine did!)
and add Ice-Cream, Cream or Yoghurt to serve.
Bon Appetit

Here is the finished product, freshly tipped into a bowl out of the mug...
Eating Time!
