Evidently Shelley and her husband, Fred, are making this every night now! Fred came up with a delicious caramel glaze to put on top of it:
...Tim thought it was missing something: Ice Cream! Double dog-gone Deee-Lishous!
5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespooons chocolate chips (optional)
A small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee 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, and mix again.
Put in 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 dagerous cake recipe in the world?
Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake any time of the day or night!
