Scrumptious Saturday - 5 minute chocolate cake

Sorry the pictures are in reverse order, but you get the point!

My good friend Joy emailed me this recipe 'cause she knows I'm a chocolate freak!

Now, I can say, I HAVE TRIED THIS! It was too interesting to pass up. It DOES WORK. It's a tad bland and a little spongy tasting. Next time I'd add more chocolate chips to the batter and have some icing on hand to add!! It's not the BEST cake I've ever tasted, but definitely fascinating enough to try at least once!


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 (MicroSafe)

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).
