I'm not sure if this is the right section but I have this amazing recipe for a late night last minute small desert, and its brilliant!

Ingreds..

4 Tabspoons SR Flour
4 Tabspoons Sugar
2 Tabspoons Cocoa
1 Egg
3 Tabspoons Milk
3 Tabspoons Oil
3 Tabspoons Choc bits (Optional)
1 Coffee Mug

Put all dry ingredients into mug and stir well
Crack egg and stir in to mug
Add milk and oil and stir thoroughly making sure all mixture including corners of mug are mixed through
Whack in microwave for 2-3 minutes on HIGH
Take out when cake stops rising
Line mug with knife and scoop out, serve with custard, icecream, cream, anything you like!

I made this the other night and it's perfect for two, just cut it in half and dish out, and its moist and doesn't have the hard cake crust like in a tin.. Perfect!

glad to see everyone is liking the recipe! when I first made it i thought it was going to be a disaster but when I tasted it I thought 'are you serious? this is amazing!' I'm all for lazy cooking that tastes great, after all I have two toddlers and a baby and a hubby I rarely see (and a large property with a push mower!) so if its quick and tastes great im won!

Thanks for the recipe.
I just tried it ....... yum.
I only used 2 tablespoons of oil instead of 3 and used light milk, turned out great. Didn't have the choc bits, will try these next time.
But I have to say you must need one jumbo coffee mug :lol: :lol: :lol:
I started with the biggest mug I had, then realized all ingredients were not going to fit in so tipped into a measuring jug. Then halfway through cooking, the jug was about to overflow, so I had to scrape half done cake into a bowl and then finish cooking.

I will be making this again but will remember to use a bigger bowl right from the start. 8)

I glad everyone likes the recipe, I think I should have mentioned that the cake does look like it's about to boil over but then it goes skyward like a big souffle. I use a coffee mug for mine and half is in the cup and half is cooked above the cup. Looks strange but tastes great.

My hubby's mates say I'm going to make them fat because now they sit at lunch and make the cake and also drink their lattes through their tim tams before eating them in one mouthful. Funny watching considering they are rough looking road construction guys!

Thank you for this amazing recipe! Hubby was so excited that he could bake a cake in 5 minutes that he's baking it all the time now!
First night he did it the original way and we just poured a bit of butterscotch over it before we enjoyed: Yumm!
Last night hubby added some raisins AND we pured butterscotch over it: It was even more delicious!
If I can't stop hubby now, I'll be fat like a cane toad by next week... :oops: :lol:

Variations!

The other night I put a bit of apple, brown sugar and cinnamon on the bottom and didnt stir it all through, then when I turned it out I had an apple tea cake! Between that and sucking my coffee through timtams and eating them I'll never manage to lose this baby weight! Oh well, I could stop but then .......

That pudding is delish! I used 1 tablespoon of butter instead of the oil, and it turned out great.
Definatly a new favourite... :P

I made this and it was delicious!

I was silly and knew it would overflow in the mug I was using, but I put it in the microwave anyway and had a messy volcano lava flow 5 min later. :lol:

The next time I split the mixture between two mugs and was much more sucessful. Beats packet cake mix for taste and $$ !

Am keen to hear more variations...!
