June brings us every Dad’s special day…Father’s Day…and what better way to treat Dad than with a nice mug cake! Not the most expensive thing but Dad will be flattered by the effort and personal touch added to his mug cake.

Is there anything better than coffee first thing in the morning? Plenty of Dads are guilty of enjoying coffee a little too much so why not pop it in a mug cake for him – there’s no beating this winning recipe….


1 slice of butter 1cm thick (30g)
6 squares of dark chocolate (30g)
1 egg
2 tbsp caster sugar
5 tbsp plain flour
½ tsp baking powder
1 tbsp instant coffee
1 tbsp single cream
1 drop of coffee extract
To decorate

Whipped cream
1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
To present

Your dad’s favourite mug – we’ve used our KBJ ‘dad’ mug


1) Add the butter and chocolate together and melt in the microwave for about 30-40 seconds (800 watts).

2) Beat until smooth and then leave to slightly chill.

3) One at a time, whisk the egg, sugar, flour, baking powder, instant coffee and cream in.

4) Add the drop of coffee extract and stir in.

5) Microwave for about 1 minutes 30 seconds (again 800 watts).

6) Leave to cool for 1 minute.

7) Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with cocoa powder.

Eat STRAIGHT AWAY…whipped cream melts quickly!
