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
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 (high). 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!
What a brilliant idea. Thank you so much. My dd is really ill and I have been trying to come up with ideas to stimulate her appetite. I think her grumpy attention span may just last the 5 minutes that it will take to make this.
In desparate need of chocolate, and remembering this and other threads I have just searched and made. I did half quantities, a smallish egg and slightly less than half milk and oil (to make up for the extra egg). It is slightly dry - so maybe 3 mins at 800W is too long for the lesser quantities, I will have to experiment. But going down well!
