    Greetings All...

    My daughters sent this to me, and I posted this on another forum, and many folks have tried it, and have come up with their own variations...
    I have not tried it, as I am in Iraq, and no cooking allowed....
    but, wanted to share with this forum..
    I can now say, this has been truly tried and tested...
    and I stand by my message,.....lol...


    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.

    EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).
    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!

    Hmmmm...not a fan of chocolate cake but would love to make a vanilla one. Probably too much sugar in the recipe for a vanilla cake ..Think it would work to add less sugar and more flour?

    These are really good. My class bought mugs at the dollar store last year and we made them at school for a class party. Later, we nade the little zip lock baggies with the dry ingredients then added instructions on what to add, put the baggie in a mug and used them for gifts. We used math because they had to figure out how much of each ingredient they needed, it was a fun lesson. Thanks for posting it.

  8. Well, it beats not having anything chocolate........ My chips all sank to the bottom.
