Mug cakes cooked in the microwave were really popular last year, which I found amusing as we’ve made cakes in the microwave at our house from being children. My sister’s favourite was chocolate sponge, mine was golden syrup sponge. I thought I’d update the flavourings with something she likes as an adult; chocolate and chilli.
Chocolate and Chilli Microwave Mug Cake (serves 1)
1 tsp chipotle Chilli powder
2 tbsp caster sugar
5 tbsp self raising flour
1. Melt the butter and chocolate together in the microwave in a large mug, heating slowly and stopping to stir frequently, so the chocolate doesn’t burn.
2. Mix in the remaining ingredients, stirring well.
3. Microwave for 1.5 minutes.
