Microwave Choc Chip Cookie

Microwave Choc Chip CookieLast 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!

Microwave Choc Chip Cookie Mug CakesIt’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

Essential Equipment

  • 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…)

Microwave Choc Chip CookieAdd in the caster sugar, brown sugar & egg yolk and stir until smooth with a fork.

Microwave Choc Chip CookieAdd in the vanilla extract, flour & salt and mix until combined and no more flour can be seen.

Microwave Choc Chip CookieNow fold through the chocolate chips, making sure to sprinkle some over the top.

Microwave Choc Chip CookieCook in the microwave for:

600W – 1 min 10 secs

800W – 1 min

1000W – 50 secs

If you have the patience, leave to stand for 10 minutes or so.

Microwave Choc Chip CookieWhen it’s cooled slightly, top with a scoop of your favourite ice cream (I think simple vanilla works great with this) and dive into heaven!

Microwave Choc Chip CookieI 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!
