5 Minute Chocolate Cake
My friend sent this recipe for a 5 minute chocolate cake made in a large coffee mug. It really works! It's rather dense (like brownies), not too sweet and is terrific with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The sweetness can be adjusted.... and the "optional" chocolate chips in the recipe form the "frosting" when you dump the cake out on a plate.
All of a sudden, I can't find any coffee mugs.
5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
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.
