Five Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

Five Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

from iVillage

When you're a college student with a sudden late night graving for chocolate and you don't keep a lot of ingredients on hand (or have a stove that works), this is perfect.

  • 4 Tbl all-purpose flour
  • 4 Tbl sugar
  • 2 Tbl cocoa powder
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbl milk
  • 3 Tbl oil
  • 3 Tbl chocolate chips (optional)
  • 2-3 drops vanilla extract
  • 1 super-awesome coffee mug
Add dry ingredients to mug and mix up with a fork (or your finger).  Add the egg and mix thoroughly (fork is probably necessary here).  Pour in the milk, oil, and vanilla and mix well; make sure you scrape the sides of the mug and incorporate all of the powder and liquids.  Add the chocolate chips and mix again.

Place the mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes (1000 watt standard).  The cake will rise over the top of the mug and deflate when the microwave kicks off.  Allow to cool a little, and tip over to a plate, wiggle around the edges with a knife if it gets stuck.  

Eat with vanilla bean or cinnamon ice cream, and enjoy!
