5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

by Mary

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

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.

EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous). And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world? Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!

Better late than never

I know I'm horribly late to this party. But, of course I would find this recipe AFTER I've been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. Can it be made with artificial sweetener?

Hi Mary

Thanks for sharing this recipe. I bet a few of the visitors will try it. I'm trying to lose weight, but if anyone makes it - how about sending me a picture so I can add it.

Thanks for sharing this.
