Get excited!!! You’re only 1 minute away from eating the most delicious, chocolate-filled, completely drool-worthy mug cake! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – mug cakes are very, very dangerous things. The fact that you can be eating a cake in only 1 minute is just far too tempting (especially for people like me who have absolutely no self-control when it comes to sweet things). 

The ingredients needed for a chocolate mug cake recipe.

  3. Add the easter eggs.
  4. Cook in the microwave for 1 minute (see notes). 
  5. Serve with a big scoop of ice-cream

Tips for making mug cakes

I like to use a big mug when I make mug cakes in the microwave. Sometimes they surprise you with how quickly they rise and you don’t want an ooey, gooey mess happening! If you use a big mug, you’ll be absolutely fine.

Every single microwave is SO different when it comes to cooking times. I recommend starting off cooking your mug cake for 1 minute and then in 15 second bursts if needed. 

Your mug cake will be ready when the top is set and the filling is still slightly fudgy – don’t overcook it.

This 1 Minute Milo & Malteser Easter Egg mug cake is amazing on it’s own, but if you’re a true chocoholic, then add a little extra chocolate sauce over the top after cooking. Sometimes I like to add a scoop of ice cream too (especially when it’s really late at night and I have that terrible tired/hungry mood combination going on – I hate that!). Given that this is such a naughty little treat, it’s probably a good thing that it only makes a single serve!

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp plain flour
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tbs Milo powder
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 mini Malteser Easter eggs
  • ice cream to serve - optional

Instructions

  • Select a large mug (a smaller one will result in an overflowing cake).
  • Put your mug onto a microwave safe plate (just in case it does overflow!).
  • Place butter into your mug and microwave for 10 seconds (or until melted).
  • Add the egg, milk and vanilla essence and lightly beat with a fork until combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients into your mug and beat with a fork until well combined (no lumps!).
  • Place mug into the microwave and cook for 30 seconds on medium heat.
  • Place the Malteser solid eggs into the cake batter.
  • Place the mug back into the microwave for a further 30 seconds on medium heat (watch it carefully to make sure it doesn't overflow).
  • The cake should be cooked on the outside and slightly gooey in the middle.
  • If you think it's still a little undercooked (all microwaves are different), then pop it back into the microwave and cook for a further 10 seconds on medium - just be careful not to overcook it!
  • Take out of the microwave and top with chocolate sauce and ice cream.

Notes

All microwaves vary greatly with how long they will take to cook this mug cake. 
I recommend cooking it for 1 minute to start, and then in 15 second extra bursts if needed (you don't want to overcook it).
