Let Them Eat Cake

The following recipe has been flying around my family’s e-mail accounts this week…

 It’s a chocolate cake you make in a coffee cup!  It only takes about 5 minutes in the microwave…
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 (MicroSafe)
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 4 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 is definitely enough cake for two! 
Now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!
