Hi all

Just had the urge for some chocolate but none in the house and I remembered ages ago finding a recipe for choc cake in a mug so though I'd goggle it and i am now scoffing a yummy choc cake/pudding. here's the recipe:

4 tbsp sr flour

4 tbsp sugar

2 tbsp cocoa (luckily i had some in....phew!)

mix above together in a mug then add

1 egg,

3tbsp milk

3 tbsp oil

Mix all up then cook on high in microwave for 3 mins (1000 kw microwave) I did 3.5 mins as mine is a 800kw. let it stand a bit as it's a bit hot then enjoy,yummy, would be even better with choc sauce

love

Liz x

 

just thought I'd try it:

We've made microwave sponge cakes before but making and serving a chocolate cake in a mug is a great idea.

Janet - the hotel chocolate boxes are amazing aren't they? We used to think Thorntons chocolate was classy until we were given some of the HC stuff. I don't know how they can make chocolate taste so good.

it's my one little luxury Mike, used to get them every other month when I was working full time, nowadays it's only if it's a special occasion, or temptation just gets the better of me.  Which it did a couple of weeks ago when I was in town (York) we are fortunate to have a shop there. I really don't like thorntons, but every year I get at least one box for Christmas, the good side of that is that I can offload those on Mike, and keep the good ones for me!

I tend to save my Hotel Chocolate spending for one of their "end of season selections". The downside is it's a lucky dip box so you don't get to choose the chocs you get. The upside is you get masses of lovely chocolates for not very much £.

We got one of the end of line boxes after christmas - I think the box was about half price but shortly after we bought it, they reduced the price even further cry

I've just splashed out full price on a easter sleekster box, it's all mini eggs, and I the reason I got it, is a few years ago, when I was working and living in Norwich, I 'found' hotel chocolate one Easter and they were selling these gorgeous bags of liqueur truffle eggs, never seen them since and I thought that's what the box was..unfortunately, it isn't. The eggs are nice but not the same.
