Measurements. I have used tablespoons so that you can avoid having to weigh out ingredients.
Swap. I used Dairy Milk in this recipe, but you can swap with your favourite chocolate. As long as the chocolate melts well.
Portions. This mug cake is for 2 ramekins and you can adjust for how many people you are feeding.
Optional. To make it a little more chocolatey you can also add in a little cocoa powder. It makes it richer and gives it a taste similar to shop bought muffins.
Important. Always use self raising flour. If you don’t the mug cake will not rise and will be flat.
