To serve

  • Coconut yoghurt or ice cream


  • Add dry ingredients to a coffee mug and mix well with a fork.
  • Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
  • Pour in the milk, oil, and vanilla and mix well, being sure to scrape the edges of the cup to incorporate all the dry ingredients.
  • Add the chocolate chips and mix again.
  • Place the mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes on high.
  • The cake will rise over the top of the mug and then sink down when the microwave is turned off. Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate. Run a knife around the edge if it doesn’t slide out easily. Serve with coconut yoghurt or ice cream.
