I made three mugs of this cake last night (photo not from Amazon.com) for the kids and I for dessert. They gave it the thumbs up, though it's very filling and you could probably get away with just eating half.
So, if you're looking for a chocolate pick-me-up, if you want a quick romantic snack to share with hubby, or if the kids need a short project in the kitchen, give it a go. BEWARE the handle of the mug does get hot!
By the way, if you know the origin of this recipe please let me know so that I can give credit.
5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
4 Tablespoons flour (that's plain flour, not self-rising)
4 Tablespoons sugar
2 Tablespoons baking cocoa
3 Tablespoons milk
3 Tablespoons oil
3 Tablespoons (optional)
Small splash of vanilla
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, and
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at
1000 watts. (My microwave is 965 so I cooked it for 3 minutes 20 secs.,
and I could probably have gone another 20 secs.)
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 share).
And why is this the most dangerous in the world?
Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate
cake at any time of the day or night!
