Super-easy one minute chocolate pudding

This is the perfect comfort food when it’s the end of the week, it’s raining cats & dogs and your family deserve a little treat. What’s more you don’t need a ridiculous amount of pots and pans to make it and all the ingredients are pretty much store cupboard essentials.

Microwave cake


  • 4 tablespoons self-raising flour
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder or hot chocolate powder7
  • 3 tbsp chocolate chips
  • 1 egg
  • Optional – 2tbsp rum, Cointreau or Baileys


  1. Add all the dry ingredients into a large mug or jug.
  2. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
  3. Add the milk and oil and mix well.
  4. Add the chocolate chips and optional booze. Mix again,
  5. You can either put your mug or jug straight into the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at high, but I tend to use 4 ramekins and cook each for approx 1 minute. Don’t panic if the cake rises over the top of the mug or ramekin – it’s meant to! Perfect served with custard or ice cream.
