Ok....saw this today in a cook book that DS #3's girlfriend gave me for Christmas.....haven't tried it yet because we still have too much Christmas sweets around, but if anyone tries it....let me know how it turns out! Sounds WAY easy....your own personal cake and less expensive than the single serving microwave cakes in the store.

5 Minute Chocolate "Mug" Cake

4 TBSP flour
4 TBSP sugar
2 TBSP cocoa
1 egg
3 TBSP milk
3 TBSP oil
3 TBSP chocolate chips (optional)
splash of vanilla extract
1 large microwave safe 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 choc. chips and vanilla and mix again.

Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at high (1000 watt oven). 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. This can serve two if you want to share. Why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world? Because now we are only 5 minutes away from warm chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!

I tried that one TxMM.. It makes a very dense cake..more like a brownie maybe? Add choco chips or nuts. I made mine plain and thought it would have been better if I had "goosed up" the basic ingredients some. It's fun!

Thanks AOL......I"ll try it when the stock of sweets goes down around here. I think I will send them all to work with DH when he goes back to work. I'm thinking no one on the faculty of my preschool will even want to look at them..haha. I'll add the chips and nuts.....how about a squirt of whip cream or ice cream? I mean...if you are going to be bad....you might as well be BAAAAAAD.! Evil or Very Mad :loves-chocolat

That does sound good, I saw it somewhere in a magazine at the doctors office, was wondering how large of mug do you need? Yummy Chocolate coffeecup and a nice cup of Joe to go with it. Yep sounds yummy to me.

LOL.....DS#2 tried it and didn't care for it....I thought it was ok. Cakes cooked in the microwave tend to be a bit rubbery and he might have overcooked it....I wasn't watching him. I agree with AOL.....put more choc chips and nuts. We used a tall mug....ummm...I can't remember what they are for, but I have a few Christmas ones...the real tall ones. It worked fine. I'd use a large one...the biggest you have until you can see how much it makes.

Thanks for the tips, now I think I will wait tell DH goes to work on the 5th and celebrate that the holidays are over with a Mug cake and some coffee it. Then off to putting all this stuff away for another 12 months. geek That will keep me busy all day long and then some!
