5 Minute Chocolate Cake

OK, I should have taken the picture before we ate it, but I didn't think of it til it was gone. Seth was pretty happy to get chocolate cake after dinner on a Wednesday night! And no more grazing on the leftovers--and not even really enjoying it--for days to come.
  • 4 T flour
  • 4 T sugar
  • 2 T cocoa
  • 1/8 t salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3 T milk
  • 3 T oil
  • 3 T 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.
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.
