Dangerous Chocolate Cake in a Mug


5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips 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 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, then tip out onto a plate. EAT! (This can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous.)

And why is this "the most dangerous cake recipe ever"?
Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!

I tried this out last night and it really works well. I think my microwave is a little stronger though and mine was a little dry. I'll cut down on the time and maybe add a few more chocolate chips. It was great to cut the warm cake in two and pop it on top of a little vanilla ice cream.
