alayna coleBrisbane author, Alayna Cole, shares her Chocolate Mug-cake recipe with us. Good for a cold winter evening!




  • mug cake4 tbls plain flour
  • 4 tbls caster sugar
  • 2 tbls cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tbls baking powder
  • dash of vanilla essence
  • 3 tbls oil (I use olive, but vegetable or whatever would work fine)
  • 2 tbls water
  • 1 egg.

Combine all in a mug. Whisking with a fork helps get all the powder up from the bottom and smooths any lumps.

 Microwave for 1min – 1.5min. It depends on your microwave. Start low, and if it’s too soft in the middle, work your way up next time – you don’t want to overcook it!
