make - 5 minute chocolate MUG cake

so it's cold, you're up late working and you need a little decadent pick me up without the time consuming effort! Well I have just the thing for you! How about a divine chocolate mud cake made in less than 5 minutes, right in your coffee cup!

Ready for it!


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.


this little gem I found on Facebook and it's been so popular that it has it's own fan page with over 175000 fans! Who'da known a little MUG cake could cause such a stir....
