Course: Dessert
Cuisine: spanish
Servings: 1 churro
Author: Gemma Stafford
  • 4 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/16 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon flavorless oil (vegetable, canola, sunflower)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoons roughly chopped chocolate
  1. In a microwave safe mug mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and cinnamon
  2. Add in the vegetable oil and milk. Stir until this comes together into smooth batter ( Not to worry if there are a few lumps)
  3. Spoon the chopped chocolate into the center of the batter.
  4. Microwave for 45 seconds to 1minute or until the cake has risen and is firm to the touch (timing is based on my 1200W microwave so your timing might vary)
  5. Combine the additional cinnamon and sugar then generously sprinkle on top. Enjoy straight away!
Recipe Notes

Cooking time will vary greatly depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug. The mugs I use are small, roughly 6oz (¾ /1 cup)

Always keep a close eye on your mug while in the microwave so it doesn’t over flow or over cook.

⅛ teaspoon is simply a ½ of a ¼ teaspoon
1/16 teaspoon is simply a ¼ of a ¼ teaspoon
