5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

4 T flour 

4 T sugar 

2 T cocoa 

1 egg 

3 T milk 

3 T oil 

3 T chocolate chips (optional - or maybe some chopped nuts?)

A small splash of vanilla extract 
(or maybe almond? or mint?)
1 large mug.

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!

You could mix up the three dry ingredients (and I would add a pinch of salt) and have it in a little container to just dump in a mug and throw in the liquid stuff. You know, if you needed your cake even faster.

I got this recipe off the Thaden Pierce blog. Sounds yummy!
