Last Christmas I was bought possibly the greatest cook book in the history of the world. I won’t lie, it’s also likely the most dangerous cook book in the world for your waistline, but my oh my is it amazing!
It’s this delightful Mug Cakes cook book. I have since tried quite a few recipes from it and have genuinely not been disappointed once. This particular recipe however, is not actually a cake. It’s a cookie. A single serve, deep dish, chocolate chip cookie to be precise. And it’s made in just 1 minute in your microwave. I mean seriously, I can’t possess this recipe and not try it out right? That would be a crime against baking!
So here is what you will need to make 1 deep dish chocolate chip cookie.
- 1 tbsp (15g) Unsalted Butter
- 1 tbsp Caster Sugar
- 1 tbsp Soft Light Brown Sugar
- 1 Egg Yolk
- 1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 3 tbsp Plain Flour
- Pinch of Salt
- 2 tbsp Chocolate Chips
- A Scoop of Your Favourite Ice Cream, Optional to Serve
- A Small Mug or Large Ramekin*
* I used a 10cm Ø x 4cm deep ramekin
Right, on with the show! No need to preheat an oven or prepare any baking sheets.
Take your ramekin or mug & add in the butter. Pop it in the microwave for 15 secs until melted. (You may need another 5-10 seconds if your butter is really cold. But take it out, swill it around then put it back in or it could explode a little bit…)
600W – 1 min 10 secs
800W – 1 min
1000W – 50 secs
If you have the patience, leave to stand for 10 minutes or so.
I can’t believe I went over 6 years of my life not owning a microwave. If I knew I could make stuff like this, I would have bought one years ago! I was genuinely surprised at how good this tasted, especially considering it was made in the microwave in 1 minute. It’s perfect for those times when you really fancy a home baked cookie but really can’t be bothered to go to the effort of making a whole batch.
I sincerely urge you to get that book if you don’t already own it. It’s packed full of crazy delicious cakes & treats that are all made in or around the 1 minute mark. Absolute genius!
