Dangerous Chocolate Mug Cake

I am not a cake connoisseur but this is tasty and definitely quick and also thrifty because you don't have to bake an entire cake (which might not all be eaten before spoiling) to fulfill a craving. If you like small portions, it's good for two servings. You will need:

  • 1 coffee mug
  • 1/4 C. All purpose Flour
  • 1/4 Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. baking cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbsp. milk
  • 3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 capful of vanilla extract
Add dry ingredients to mug, mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in milk, oil and vanilla, mix well. Place coffee mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes (or less depending on the desired texture) at 1000 watts.

During cooking the cake will expand over top of coffee mug but it won't make a mess and will recede once the cooking stops. It's kind of cool to watch the process ;-)

Allow to cool a tiny bit and tip out onto a plate if desired.

And why is this "Dangerous Chocolate Mug Cake" dangerous? Because now we are all only 10 easy minutes away from a chocolate cake fix ;-)
