Here is a recipe so easy, so simple, so basic, that anyone can make it.
4 tablespoons plain flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips/mini marshmallows/chopped nuts/cherries/anything else you fancy throwing in (optional)
drop of vanilla extract
1 large microwavable mug or several smaller teacups
Add dry ingredients to mug and mix.
Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
If using chocolate chips/mini marshmallows/chopped nuts/cherries/anything else you want to throw in add them now.
Add vanilla extract. Mix again.
Put your mug or teacups in the microwave and cook for 2-3 minutes at 1000 watts (high). The cake will rise over the top of the mug.
Allow to cool a little.
