A while back I saw that Pete had posted this on twitter, and we decided it was worth a try - since then I can’t remember how many times we’ve made them as it’s so simple and tastes good!  Just posting it on my blog so it’s easier to find in the future!


  • 4 tablespoons flour

  • 4 tablespoons sugar

  • 2 tablespoons cocoa

  • 1 egg

  • 3 tablespoons milk

  • 3 tablespoons oil

  • A splash of vanilla extract (we didn’t use this)

  • 3 tablespoons of chocolate chips (optional)


  1. Combine the dry ingredients in a large coffee mug

  2. Add the egg and mix together

  3. Pour in the milk and oil, mix

  4. Add the chocolate chips and vanilla extract (if using)

  5. Microwave for 3 minutes

  6. Allow to cool and tip onto a plate
