Ingredients

  Chocolate pudding 1 Tablespoon (Prepared One)
  Oil 2 Tablespoon

  Sugar 4 Tablespoon
  Unsweetened cocoa powder 2 Tablespoon
  All purpose flour 4 Tablespoon
Directions

GETTING MUG READY

Prepare the mug by coating the inside lightly with cooking spray.

PREPARATION

Mix the ingredients in a small bowl. Beat egg first with a spoon and mix in other liquid ingredients. Then add dry ingredients and mix until you've removed all the lumps.
Pour the batter into the mug (do not fill more than halfway) and smooth the top with a spoon.Thump mug firmly on the tabletop six times to remove excess air bubbles. Place mug on top of a microwavable small plate or saucer.

Bake for 3 - 4 minutes. Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick in the middle of the microwave mug cake and removing the toothpick. If the toothpick is dry, the MMC is done.
Wait 2 minutes, then run a butter knife along the inside of the mug, and tip the cake into plate. Position the mug cake so that the slightly rounded top is on top. Your microwave mug cake will now look like a slightly overgrown muffin.

FANCY STUFF
Frost the whole Mocha Microwave Mug Cake with chocolate or mocha frosting, or split the MMC in half, and frost each half individually (in which case you'll end up with two separate MMCs - or you can reassemble the frosted halves to create a layered MMC). Decorate, if you wish, with semisweet chocolate chips.
