5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

You must go make this. Now. It took me 5 minutes from start to finish, and I had a warm, gooey, chocolatey chocolate cake on my plate. In fact, the entire process from start to consumption was only 7 minutes. (disclaimer: this pic is not of mine, but mine did come out just like it!)


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 (Microwave Safe)

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well.  Add the egg and mix thoroughly before pouring in the milk and oil in.  Keep mixing.  Add the optional chocolate chips next (who makes that an option!) and vanilla extract, and mix again…

Put your mug in the micro wave and cook for three minutes at 1000 watts.  The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don’t be alarmed!  Allow it to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
