Five Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

This is the most dangerous cake recipe in the world.  Why? Just read on.....


The ingredients you will need are as follows:


4 tablespoons of flour

4 tablespoons of sugar

2 tablespoons of cocoa

1 egg

3 tablespoons of milk

3 tablespoons of oil

3 tablespoons of chocolate chips (optional)

a splash of vanilla extract

1 large coffee mug


Add the dry ingredients to the mug and mix well.  Add the egg and mix thoroughly.  Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.  Add the chocolate chips (if you are using them) 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 (see photo) but don't be alarmed!  Allow to cool a little, then tip out onto a plate.


EAT! This can easily serve two if you want to feel slightly more virtuous / less greedy.


And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world?  Because we are all now only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!  With thanks to my oldest friend, Pat, for sending me this recipe.
