Recipe For Disaster

This is a recipe for disaster.  My friend, JoAnn, emailed this to me.  At least I thought she was my friend, until she emailed this to me.  I replied that I was not going to try it.  The last thing I need is an almost-instant chocolate cake at my fingertips.  Maybe one of your “friends” also emailed it to you. 

Is anyone brave enough to try it?  Let me know how it goes.  (For me, it would not be “how” it goes, but “where” it goes:  my hips.) 

‎5- Minute Chocolate Mug Cake 

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 (microwave safe)

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.  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.

(I’m hoping this isn’t just a trick to get chocolate splattered all over the inside of the microwave. And I don’t know why I feel compelled to say “inside” of the microwave. “Inside” is always where the microwaving goes on, so that qualifier isn’t really needed. And I don’t know why I feel compelled to say “really” needed, as ….)

  1. I’ve tried it twice. The first time I left out the milk — I copied it down wrong after trying, and failing, to print it. Second time I made it with the milk. Tasted good both times — especially with “cake batter” flavored ice cream! Yummmm.
