Quick and easy chocolate cake in Microwave (egg free)

Today being Valentine's day, Anjalie said she "felt" for chocolate pudding. So we decided to make a quick and easy chocolate cake in a mug for dessert tonight. We had tried this at our Vegan friend's house, two years ago, and had really enjoyed it and the recipe is so simple that I was able to recall it tonight. Anjalie made this all by herself with me around to assist with some of the measurements and also to take the hot cup from the microwave. So, of course, by all means feel free to recruit children to make this with you. Have fun making this together!

You will need:
3 tbsp. flour
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. + 1 tsp. cocoa powder
pinch of salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 tsp oil
3 tablespoons milk/soya milk 
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

 Mix all dry ingredients in a mug

Add in the liquids next and mix well.

Microwave for 1 min and then at 20 secs at a time until when you insert a toothpick it comes clean. Let it cool and ice/decorate and serve. The cake will go back down a bit when cool. But it will still be soft :)

You can decorate with icing sugar or normal chocolate icing or any other icing of your choice. Share and enjoy!
