- 4 tablespoons Flour
- 4 tablespoons Sugar
- 2 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
- 1 Egg
- 3 tablespoons Milk
- 3 tablespoons Oil
- 3 tablespoons Chocolate Chips (optional)
- small splash of Vanilla Extract
- 1 large Coffee Mug (microwave safe)
ADD flour, sugar, and cocoa powder into a mug and MIX well. I recommend using a larger size mug than standard size.
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 the 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.
This recipe can serve 1 or 2 people from one mug cake. But, since it is baked in your own personal mug, why not eat it all yourself? Beware that this is the most dangerous cake recipe in the world, because it puts you only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake no matter what time of day or night!
While this may not be the best chocolate cake I have ever eaten (tastes like the ones in frozen meals), it is a decent option when you are in emergency need for a chocolate fix. And it is a quick fix too since it only takes 3 minutes in the microwave (plus 2 minutes for prep).
Hope this easy microwave cake helps you get your weekend off to a good start!
