A late night treat for Santa's Elves Mug Cake

Find yourself stitching well into the early hours to get those projects completed in time for Christmas? Here's a special treat just for you... ice cream optional.


4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil [I'm going to try it with apple sauce instead]
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
a small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug

Add dry ingredients to the mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil (or applesauce) and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.

Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts (high). The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed! Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.

  1. Hi Janet,
    I'm so glad you came by and entered the giveaway. I always find blogs I've not been to and I get to save them. Had to copy some of the chocolate recipe's, they sound delicious.
    Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas,
