It’s been one of those days when my Facebook news feed seems to be filled with videos of people making Nutella cakes and Kinder cakes and it’s making me crave chocolate! I thought I’d have a go at an easy mug cake using Sweet Freedom Choc Shot (you can buy it here on Amazon, but its cheaper in the supermarket).

It did it for me, it tastes good, it’s not eggy and it’s warm and chocolatey! It’s not the Nutella cake I’ve been drooling over, but it certainly satisfied me enough to avoid any more naughty snacks!

A quick and easy mug cake to keep you on track!

Syns: 5.5


  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp Sweet Freedom Choc Shot
  • 1/2 tbsp Flora Light
  • 1 tbsp self-raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 heaped teaspoon powdered stevia (sweetener)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp chocolate sprinkles


  1. pop the milk and Flora Light into a mug and microwave for about 10 seconds, so the margarine melts
  2. stir in 3/4 tbsp choc shot, then the vanilla extract, baking powder, flour, egg and stevia and mix well with a fork, breaking down any lumps.
  3. Microwave on high for 60-70 seconds. This should be long enough, but give it a quick poke to make sure it’s springy and not squishy, and if it isn’t quite done, give it 10 second bursts until it is.
  4. Drizzle the remaining choc shot over the top and cover with chocolate sprinkles. Eat while warm
