Wee Cook Wednesday: 5 Minute Cake-in-a-Mug

My mother-in-law passed this along to me. I confess I haven’t actually tried it yet, but thought I’d pass it along for the more adventurous among us!

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 and/or dash of cinnamon
1 large coffee mug (MicroSafe)

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/cinnamon, and mix again.

Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes  (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 … be sure to add a little ice cream.)

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!
