Dangerous Chocolate Cake in a Mug

Oh My...every so often something so clever and good comes along that you just have to share. Thanks to Kathi from Kuwait for posting this on an online quilting list. This is just too much fun!

1 coffee mug
4 Tbsp. cake flour (plain, not self-rising)
4 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. cocoa
1 egg
3 Tbsp. milk
3 Tbsp. oil
Small splash of vanilla
3 Tbsp. chocolate chips, optional
Add dry ingredients to mug, mix well with a fork. Add egg,mix thoroughly. Pour in milk and oil and vanilla, mix well. Add chips, if using.Put mug in microwave, and cook for three minutes on 1000watts. Cake will rise over top of mug--do not be alarmed! Allow to cool a little; tip onto a plate if desired.Eat!
And WHY is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world? Because now we are all only five minutes away from chocolate cake any time of the day or night!

Perfect for the quilter who has worked all day stitching on the latest masterpiece and has no time to bake. Now we can have our cake and quilt it too! :)

  1. The "resourceful" says it all. If you are having one of those "give me chocolate or your life" days....this one could save the world. Got to try it soon.
