Microwave Mug Cake

Here's something fun and intriguing... My daughter's father-in-law forwarded this recipe to me via email (thanks, Gary!). Who knew you could make single-serving chocolate cake in a microwave???


5-MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE


4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
a small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug


Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed! Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired. EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).


And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world? Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!






Let me know if you try it!

This sounds so bad for my "losing weight mode" that I am in right now. But oh-so-yummy and tempting! That's a really neat recipe Pam.
