A late night sneaky treat just for yourself
There are times when all you want is something sweet. Maybe you have had a hard day and you need to raid the hidden chocolate stash, or perhaps the kids have gone to bed and it's some well-earnt "me time". This recipe is perfect for those moments. It has melted chocolate in two places and the sweetness of the raspberries meets any sweet tooth. This recipe is very dense, which I like, however, feel free to experiment with levels of the wet and dry ingredients to change the texture.

Another benefit of this "mini" recipe is that you can customise it to your preference of chocolate type or the choice of ingredients to put inside. You can add desiccated coconut, nuts, spices or anything you like and if you don't like the combination, it only takes 1.5 minutes to microwave another! This recipe is a winner as it is, or altered to your liking. Enjoy!



Ingredients

4 Tablespoons plain flour
2 Tablespoons cacao powder (or cocoa)
2.5 Tablespoons sugar
Large pinch of baking powder
4 Tablespoons milk
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 Tablespoons dark chocolate choc chips (split in two)
5 frozen raspberries (or blueberries and other fruits), defrosted

For all chocolate lovers!


What To Do

Step 1: In a small bowl, add the flour, cacao/ cocoa, sugar and baking powder and stir to combine.

Step 2: Add the olive oil and milk and stir. The mixture will look dry to make a dense "cake", but if it looks too dry and it isn't forming together, add another tablespoon of milk.

Step 3: In a mug, add 1 Tablespoon of choc chips and then half of the cake mixture.

Step 4: Drop in the raspberries and remaining choc chips (for a moist surprise in the centre).

Step 5: Add the remaining mixture. Cover the top of the mug with cling film and microwave for 1.5 minutes.

Be careful when you take off the cling film as the steam is piping hot!! The dense cake fills half the mug, so you can add a small scoop of vanilla ice cream for extra decadence!

Why don't you give it a try this weekend... or tonight?
