5 Minute Chocolate Cup Cake :)

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 (high). 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!

I tried this, and have now made two changes. As an American, I find it works better for me with heaping spoons of sugar instead of level. And the chocolate ships sink to the bottom, so I give it a quick stir after 30 seconds.

Flutter, we have made this several times now. Absolutely delicious!<br />
The little man recommends a few extra chocolate chips :)

Add a few drops of mint extract and you get choco-mint cake. Also yummy!

Awesome. I shall have to try it.<br />
<br />
And here is a very dangerous idea. With a fridge and some milk and eggs at work, I can premix the dry ingredients in a baggie, and bring oil, and make this at work! I shall start a new trend, and be hailed and reviled at the office!!

Why do you say the chocolate chips are optional??? Chocolate is NEVER optional! Chocolate is necessary!!!! Chocolate is essential. You should NEVER make it optional!!! We NEED chocolate. Chocolate ... GOOD. <br />

I'm totally making some of these this weekend. And moving up a dress size, too.
