I received an email from my friend Karen earlier this week
with an interesting recipe,
5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake...
just too intriguing to pass up!
4 T. flour
4 T. sugar
2 T. cocoa
Pour in 3 T. milk
A small splash of vanilla extract.
Speaking of vanilla extract--have you ever used vanilla from Mexico???
Place 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.
It's supposed to do that. Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate. This will serve 1-2 people. (I had this cake for lunch today.) It's a fun thing to try, but the cake seemed a little tough to me. Also, I did not use the chocolate chips, but I think they would have been a nice addition. One suggestion, you might want to mix it all up in a small bowl, then pour into your mug. It seemed a little difficult to mix everything in the mug. Since this cake only takes five minutes to prepare, you NEVER, ever have to be without chocolate cake!
