5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

I just received an email from my mother-in-law containing this recipe, thank you very much you know I love chocolate. You better believe I will be trying this on a cold night, especially as soon as we run out of birthday cake. I looked up a few pictures of it that people had posted and it looks absolutely delicious, now all you need to do is add a scoop of ice cream, whip cream or some melted chocolate over the top (if anyone has ever tried chocolate lava cake then they know what I am talking about). Of course it looks like enough for two, so share with your spouse if you are in the mood to share, if not I am sure they will not get between you and your chocolate they should know better.


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. 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!
