They call it Choclate Mug Cake

Cause a gal like me really needs to be within 5 minutes of a decadent chocolate dessert.


4 tablespoons flour

4 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons baking cocoa

1 egg

3 tablespoons milk

3 tablespoons oil

3 tablespoons chocolate chips(optional)

a small splash of vanilla

1 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, and mix again.

Put your mug in the microwave and cook 3 minutes at 1000 watts.

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).

Hmmmmm........maybe if I used whole wheat flour. Then I could add a scoop of ice cream!!

Ohhhh Heather. We should bring pre-measured baggies to the retreat and have these each night! I too have a need for chocolate. I blame it all on Colin. I never liked sweets until I was pregnant with him. AAHHH!!!
