Mug-o-chocolate cake

Is there anyone who hasn't experimented with microwave cakes at one time or another? I have had my fair share of mug cakes in college when I was desperate for something sweet (and, crucially, ovenless). The concept is great in theory, but, in reality, most are either too dry, too explosive (!) or just plain bland.

I am happy to report that this Nutella chocolate chip cake hits all the right spots. It is just cakey enough, chocolatey, sweet (but not overly so) and altogether delicious.

Ingredients Makes 1 large or two small mug cakes 1 heaped tbsp Nutella 4 level tbsp self raising flour 2 tsbp light brown sugar (or granulated) 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted (or vegetable oil) 1 tbsp Greek yoghurt 1 small egg 1 tbsp dark chocolate chips Pinch salt Tiny pinch bicarbonate of soda

Put all the ingredients apart from the chocolate chips in a small bowl and mix thoroughly with a spoon until you have a thick batter. Add the chips and mix to combine. Fill one large mug 2/3 full- the cake will rise so don't overfill! Microwave on full power for 1 1/2 minutes .
