GF – Microwave Mug Cake

Hey Guys,

It’s November, the days are short, the nights are long.. and the snow flake came on my car’s dashboard this week which means – It’s Officially winter!

Climbing into bed on Tuesday night, I needed a pick me up of sugar whilst i binge watched Netflix – So came across a recipe for Mug cake and swapped a few bits to make it Gluten Free! It was beaut, so clearly,  I need to share the recipe with you!

Ingredients you need:

  • 4 tbsp Gluten Free self raising (SR) flour
  • 4 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 medium egg
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 3 tbsp vegetable/sunflower oil
  • A few drops vanilla or other essence (orange, peppermint etc)
  • 2 tbsp chocolate chips/nuts/raisins etc (optional, but why not?)

Use the largest mug you have to avoid it overflowing in the microwave!

  1. Add the flour, sugar and cocoa powder to the mug and mix.
  2. Add the egg to the mixture. Mix in as much as you can but don’t worry if there’s still dry mix left.
  3. Add all the other ingredients apart from the chocolate chips etc (if you are adding) and mix until smooth. Add the chocolate chips and/or the nuts/raisins and mix well.
  4. Centre your mug in the middle of the microwave and cook on high for 4-5 mins, or until it has stopped rising and is firm to the touch. Watch it rise as it cooks!
  5. Let it stand for 30 seconds – 1 Minute.

Add some cream or ice-cream on top – and you’re done!
