A moist and fluffy version of the standard chocolate mug cake
A love a mug cake! What's not to like about cake you can make in 10 minutes? I have made chocolate courgette cake before but never as a mug cake. This is more moist than the usual chocolate mug cakes that I make (which cake be a bit dry and gluey at times) and has a nice open texture. This makes one fairly large cake. Cut it in half and share it, or devour it all by yourself!

    Step 6

    Microwave for roughly 2 minutes (I have a 800 watt microwave). It will get fairly tall, if you have used a similar sized mug to me it may ooze over the top. Catch the drips by putting it on a plate. It should be glossy and sticky on the top when you take it out and cooked all the way through.

    Enjoy!
