Mug O' Cake

I got this recipe from Kathy at By Word of Their Testimony. I haven't tried it yet, but think I will this weekend. Enjoy!

Most Dangerous Chocolate Cake in the World

1 Coffee Mug
4 tablespoons plain flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
Small splash of vanilla

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well with a fork. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.

Pour in the milk and oil and continue to mix well.

Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla, and mix again.

Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts. The cake might 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.

ENJOY! (This can serve 2 if you want to share!)

From Carol: my two cents additions...Add a small candy like a Butterfinger, Snickers or Three Muskateers to the cup. Top with whip cream and caramel sauce for a really disgustingly good treat!
