Mix together the flour, cocoa powder (unless you are making a plain cake), the salt and sugar into your mug.

Add in the oil and the milk well, so there are no lumps.

Place in the microwave for 2 minutes. This is what time works best for me, but it depends on the wattage of the microwave and stuff, so see what's best for you.

Leave to cool for a bit, and then you have a cake in a mug, ready to eat! Enjoy!
