5 minute Chocolate Mug Cake
« on: March 18, 2009, 06:46:10 pm »

This was sent to me today....looks good and easy!!
Emma T


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!

Ok,I feel I have to report back........

Tried it once and is really quite nice. Unfortunately,if you didn't already know,I'm a chocaholic. So second attempt involved a mars bar and two cocktail sticks.As before make your mixture,but then stick a mars bars vertically in the mug,held upright by the cocktail sticks,and then nuke it. Cake mixture covers the bar,which becomes really saucy  ;)   Off for the third attempt with a peanut butter jumbo kitkat...... lord knows how I keep my figure!!   :yum:
