5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake
4 Tbs. flour
4 Tbs. sugar
2 Tbs. cocoa
3 Tbs. milk
3 Tbs. oil
1 small splash of vanilla extract
3 Tbs. chocolate chips (optional)
Add dry ingredients to mug and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add chocolate chips 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 onto a plate if desired.
Both times I did this I didn't bother to find out the wattage of my microwave and do the math to make sure it cooked at 1000 watts.
I'm perfectly capable of doing the math; I just didn't.
Some day I will and I highly recommend it if you don't mind moving the microwave and looking for the wattage sticker or plate and dividing the amount to determine at what power level you need to set your cook time and then replacing the microwave after cleaning the dust bunnies you now must deal with and reorganizing all that may be on and around your microwave.
Because I'm just saying that if you do not know your microwave's wattage already, this is NOT going to be a 5 minute chocolate mug cake; it will be closer to a 30 minute chocolate mug cake and then you may as well have baked a 9x11 cake and then your diet is shot.
Also, it's really hard not to call it a mud cake. Maybe it's just me.
But really, Enjoy!
