(The most dangerous chocolate cake recipe)

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 high (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 or eat it right out of the mug!


This can serve two if you want to feel slightly more virtuous and is GREAT with a little vanilla ice cream.  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!
