My Sister sent me this recipe and I can't wait to try it. I don't have cocoa in the house. Bahumbug.

4 tablespoons flour 4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa 1 egg
3 tablespoons milk 3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional) 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 (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).
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!
Do you have chocolate chips?
Just melt the chocolate chips and eliminate a Tablespoon of oil! It will be a bit lighter but hey!, its chocolate cake!!!
I got this in my email yesterday from my mother-in-law, will make it this week when everyone is at school and work then I can enjoy it by myself. Shhhhh, it's a secret cake at my house...LOL.....
That is a good recipe, some folks call in Cake in a Mug. I always keep cocoa as a staple for baking. I bake a lot of chocolate desserts.
we make these all of the time I will post our recipe which includes frosting as soon as I find the recipe box they make great christmas gifts too
OH MY GOODNESS...thi sis not good information for me...I just sent hubby to get the cocoa down for me ...I am off to try this out...thanks I think ...LOL..;) for posting this...
Wharyatryintado Kill us !!!! a 5 minute choclate cake !!! I should be 250lbs in a week an a half. I am going to try it tonight I have Godiva Cocoa but I don't know if my Micro is 1000 or 750 watts. I gusee it will just take a little more time---maybe 7 minutes. I am off to try it out.
I tried it, put it on for 3 minutes then took my cake tester to it and it came out clean so took it out. emptied the cake onto a plate, it's wasn't quite done, it's thick like pound cake
swindy or anyone else, have you tried it? what did you think?
Well I am back with th cake in my hand waiting for it to cool just alittle bit lol You better have a really big mug as I made it in a mug that I use only for soup and it raised to the top of that. My Micro is small so I tried it first at 3 min. then put it back in for another 2 min and thaen another 2 min. I did put the chocolate chips in it. Ok here goes -- the first bite-- Boy is this yummy-- a little tuff but that might be because I had to put it back in a couple of times and I don't think it is really cooked all the way --- but I am still eating it--- and it looks so pretty on the plate. I put a chocolate iceing on it right when I turned it out on the plate and the chocolate melted down the sides of the cake and puddled a bit on the plate. this is okay with me. I am going to have to try it in a full power microwave oven .
Are you still eating it Laurie? I am. Laurie I wonder if you put a little less oil in it would it come out lighter
Worked just like it should of here...hubbywas thrilled...I made two and sent one to work with him ...way to sweet for me though...for this I am thankful...LOL
