This Looks Dangerous!

OK, I haven't tried this yet, but I can't resist passing this along. If anyone tries it before I do, I'd love to hear how it turned out!

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).

I'm bummed! I wanted to give it a try this weekend, but the days are slipping by. Maybe tomorrow night...although I need chocolate cake like I need a hole in my head! Glad it was good, Vanessa...let me know what else you try with the recipe. :-)

I just tried this as a coffee cake type thing... SO GOOD!!

Instead of using cocoa, add a dash of nutmeg and about a tablespoon of cinnamon. Cook it about a minute longer than with the cocoa.

Man this is an addictive cake recipe!

Ooops... I forgot the brown sugar. Add 2 tablespoons of that. ;)

Makes a good breakfast with the coffee.
