Chocolate cake in a mug in 5 minutes or your money back.

Boots is so jealous.

(Random notes: I just used regular flour. While attempting to mix the oil and milk into the rest I remembered it probably wanted a rising agent, so tossed in a bit of baking powder, which had the added benefit of making the oil and milk mix instantly. I was going to eat it out of the mug, but curious about the shape I tipped it out upside down - and discovered there was some unbaked mixture left at the bottom which made a delicious sauce. Your microwave may vary.)

If only I'd read this sooner. We just had a friend and her teenage daughter over for pizza and that would have been fun to try. Maybe next time.

mjlayman gave me a chocolate cheese cupcake recipe last year. You make the chocolate cake batter than mix half a pound of philadelphia cheese with sugar and an egg. You put the chocolate mix in the cupcake liner and then spoon the cheese mix on top and during baking the choc rises up round the cheese and so you get the gooey cheesecakey centre. Gorgeous. But when you throw the whole lot of choc batter into a square pyrex dish and chuck the cheesecake mix in the middle and bake for about 45 minutes you get it all cooked round the outsuide with the wonderful hot sauce in the middle all cheesey and chocolatey and gooey. I'm getting goosepimples just thinking about it. Here's the recipe. These are American cup measures.

Chocolate Cream Cheese Cupcakes
Marilee J. Layman
serves 18-19 according to Marilee. Mine makes about 14 in my tins.


8 oz. package cream cheese
1 egg
0.33 cup sugar
0.125 tsp. salt
6 oz. package chocolate chips

Combine topping ingredients except chocolate chips and beat well. Stir in
chips and set aside.


1.5 cups flour
1 cup sugar
0.25 cup cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
0.5 tsp. salt
1 cup water
0.33 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. vinegar
1 tsp. vanilla

Sift together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Add remaining
ingredients and beat well.

Fill cupcake paper about half full and top with 1 Tablespoon of topping.
Bake at 350°F for 20 min.

The cake batter will rise up around the topping so most of the topping is on the inside. This is a very very rich treat. Plan on one cupcake per person.

Probably a different tin size UK-US. I'm glad you like them! I hadn't thought about putting it in a pan!

I didn't make this up, I got it from a friend who brought it back from a family funeral. I know this is weird, but we always got great recipes when she came back from funerals.

I'd have to buy the first four ingredients, so while I was at the grocery, I could just buy cake!
