The perfect afternoon treat for Mother's Day, this chocolate mug cake takes no time at all to make and is an ideal last-minute sweet treat. The delicious flavours of rich chocolate, creamy malted milk and sweet raspberries are sure to please.

In a large, microwave-proof mug, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder and malted milk powder and mix well. Add in the egg until the mixture is smooth and thick. Gradually stir in the milk and oil, then add in 6-8 raspberries and the chocolate chips. Mix well and microwave on high for 4-5 minutes until firm.

Tip: For an extra indulgence, whisk double cream until firm, then gently mash through the remaining raspberries with a fork and serve on top of the hot cake.
