Try a Tutorial Tuesday: Mug Cakes

Tuesday 27 January 2015

Ok so technically I haven't done a tutorial this week, because I'm still dieting and I had a REALLY naughty week last week. I'm trying to reign myself in, so no baking for me... BUT I still want to share this book with you because it is an absolute beaut.

I picked this up in the works a few weeks ago, because I am a big fan of cakes that can be made in the microwave. That same day I got my brother and sister involved and we all made chocolate chip cookie cakes in our mugs. Considering they only took about 5 minutes to make, they were really good!

It's so easy, you pretty much mix all the ingredients in the mug, and then microwave them together to bake. Even better, there are such a great variety of cakes in this book, from Peanut Butter Chocolate to Chocolate Fudge Smores. 

Seeing as I didn't actually make anything on this week's TTT I thought I would share with you all a recipe from the book so please enjoy, and make sure you tweet me pictures if you make it!

Rocky Road Mug Cake (makes one cake):

  • 2 tbsp soft butter
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 medium egg
  • 3 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp self-raising flour
  • 4 tbsp mini marshmallows
  • 2 tbsp raisins
  • 2 tbsp plain biscuits (broken)


  1. Place the butter in the mug a microwave for a few seconds until softened.
  2. Stir in the cocoa powder until combined, then add the egg and sugar and beat until combined.
  3. Add the flour and salt and beat again until smooth.
  4. Fold through almost all of the marshmallows, raisins and biscuit then top with the remaining.
  5. Cook in the microwave for 2 min 20 sec @ 600w, 2 mins @ 800w or 1 min 40 sec @ 1000w.
  6. Leave to cool for a minute, and then go to town on it!
My mouth is watering just thinking about it, and I can't even have any because of my diet, I am actually sobbing right now...
