Turkish Delight Melt-In-The-Middle Mug Cake

When the need for indulgent chocolate cake arises, this 2-minute mug cake satisfies on every level. You’ll spoon through soft, warm cake before you reach a sweet, gooey centre. You’re welcome.

Turkish Delight Melt-In-The-Middle Mug Cake


Serves 1


2 tbsp self-raising flour

2 tbsp cocoa powder

2 tbsp caster (superfine) sugar

1 tbsp sunflower oil

¼ tsp rose extract

2 squares of Turkish delight (ensure gelatine free and carmine free), more to garnish


In a large mug, mix together the flour, cocoa powder and sugar until combined.

Pour in the sunflower oil, 3 tablespoons of cold water and the rose extract, then whisk with a fork until combined and smooth.

Press the Turkish delight into the centre of the mug until it is completely covered in batter.

Cook in a 800W microwave for 2 minutes and allow to cool for 1 minute before digging in.
