Dangerously Delightful Delicious Decadence!

1 10 2008

Via a friend in our online adoption group I came across this wonderful recipe.  But be forewarned. . . now we are all just 5 minutes away from a delicious piece of chocolate cake!!!  Yikes!

5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake 

1 coffee mug

4 TBS flour

4TBS sugar

2 TBS baking cocoa

1 egg

3 TBS milk

3 TBS oil

Small splash of vanilla

3 TBS chocolate chips

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 vanilla and chocolate chips and mix again.  Put your mug in the microwave and cook for ** edit: I think 2 1/2 minutes is better then 3 minutes.  The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don’t be alarmed.  Allow to cool for a minute and tip out onto a plate.  ENJOY!
