5 minute Chocolate Mug Cake

Ok, so I had to try this because I didn't think it was possible to make chocolate cake in 5 minutes. But you can! Wow, a chocolate cake addict could be in trouble with this one! Try it out, it is fun. Play around with it and add things you like (caramel, different flavored chips, etc.) It is great warm with some vanilla ice cream.

4 Tbls. all purpose flour (not self rising)
4 Tbls. sugar
2 Tbls. baking cocoa
1 egg
3 Tbls. milk
3 Tbls. oil (I did less)
3 Tbls. chocolate chips
A splash of vanilla
1 hot cocoa mug

  • Add dry ingredients to mug and mix well.
  • Add the egg and mix well.
  • Pour in the milk and oil, mix well.
  • Add the chocolate chips and vanilla and mix again.
  • Put you mug in the microwave and cook for 2 1/2- 3 minutes at 1000 watts (I cooked on 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.
  • Serves 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous.
