Surprisingly OK Microwave Chocolate Cake

Maybe not the most enticing of titles but when you’re looking for a quick pudding fix after dinner and don’t want to waste money/energy using the oven just for one dessert, the microwave cake seems to promise it all. Yet, sadly, so many are so very lacking. I thought I’d try this one based on its odd ingredients and was happy when it turned out to be pretty tasty, especially with some ice-cream.


1 tbsp plain flour

1 tbsp cocoa powder

1 tbsp sugar

1/8 tsp bicarbonate of soda

Sprinkle of sea salt

1/4 t vanilla (optional)

1 tbsp plain yoghurt

2-4 tsp milk

1-2 squares of chocolate, chopped up

  1. Butter a ramekin or mug
  2. Stir the dry ingredients together in a bowl; add the vanilla and the yoghurt and mix to combine, then add enough milk so that it’s nice and smooth.
  3. Add the chocolate chips.
  4. Spoon into the buttered receptacle and microwave for 60-70 seconds.
  5. Turn out (or just leave in the mug – careful; it’ll be really hot!) and enjoy alone or with cream/ice-cream.
