Ooh...sooo dangerous!

A friend on Facebook recently posted this recipe as a note and I literally ran to my pantry to see if I had all the ingredients to try this out. Unfortunately I had everything I needed except an egg. My husband was out of town, my kids were in bed, and I would have looked really strange knocking on my neighbor's door at 10:00 at night to borrow an egg, so I was out of luck that night. This afternoon as I was grabbing a few groceries I made sure eggs were on my list for this specific thing! So check this out:

  • 4 tablespoons flour 
  • 4 tablespoons sugar 
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa 
  • 1 egg 
  • 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 and vanilla extract, and mix again. 
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes.

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!

**Ok so one problem with this recipe: all the chocolate chips sink to the bottom, so they're only in the bottom half of the cake and the top is slightly bland without the chips. So my suggestion: cut off the top half and toss it. Eat the bottom! It makes quite a bit anyway. I wouldn't have been able to eat both halves. Enjoy!

Yummy-yum. I saw this on my friend Bethany's blog awhile ago, but never tried it. May just have too...
