Cooking For Gamers: What to make in a 5 minute break? Microwave Chocolate Mug Cake

    Small pot of chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons sugar (adjust, this makes for quite a sweet cake)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil or similar
  • 2 tablespoons milk, can replace with hazelnut or almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons plain/all-purpose flour + 1/2 tablespoon baking powder OR 2 tablespoons self raising flour
  • 1/2 tablespoon peanut butter
  • optional: 1 tablespoon nutella, fluff, chocolate chips etc.

In the mug, stir everything except the peanut butter/optional ingredients together until smooth. Drop the remaining ingredients into the middle of the mixture. 

Microwave for 1 minute, then stick a knife or skewer into it, its done when the knife comes out cleanly (or acceptably sticky), if not done, continue microwaving 15 seconds at a time.

Less lazy option: You could grease the inside of the mug with butter/oil, mix the ingredients in a different container and pour it into the mug - this would be easier to clean/less cake would be stuck to the sides of the mug
