Hear Ye, Hear Ye! Lazy Women of the World Hear Ye This! You can make a delicious chocolate cake for two in FIVE MINUTES!
Late last night I got an email with this recipe in it. I exclaimed how cool it looked so Aaron said "Let's do it!" Of course, by "let's" he meant for me to do it because he thinks he can't bake. Well, this is for even those with a faint heart of any kind with respect to baking. It's NOT baking -- it's mixing stuff in a cup and throwing it in the microwave!
You mix the ingredients in a COFFEE MUG, put it in the microwave for THREE MINUTES and you have a warm chocolate cake!! It really was good! And, it was plenty for TWO PEOPLE to share.
Here's the recipe that came in the email...except it said the chocolate chips were optional and I say you need them.
5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips
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).
And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world? Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!
