5 mintue Chocolate Cake in a Mug!!

on Dec 13, 2011 @ 07:26 am


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 (MicroSafe)

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well.  Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
<?xml:namespace prefix = o />

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.

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!

I haven't tried it yet either, a friend of mine just sent it to me
yesterday. I bet you could make just about any kind of cake as long as
you had every thing you need. I think I'm going to try it in a big hot
chocolate mug. It would also be an easy way to make individually cakes
for a small dinner party as your desert. You could change the chocolate
up and try white chocolate, add some mint or other flavors. I'll let ya
know how it works out for me when I try it.

This is way too easy. It's the kind of thing I could make a daily habit of if it's really good. For that reason I'm too afraid to try it!

You make me laugh! LOL
Have a Great day!

Mmmmm!!!! on Dec 14, 2011 @ 09:34 am

I love the idea of this, I have seen it floating around the internet for a while now and I have yet to try it but it always looks sooo easy!

This microwave cake is from this blog that promises that you'll be done in 1 minute- WOW!

I also found this recipe for a cake that uses nutella instead.

Another one I found makes an easy caramel sauce- mmm..... drooling now.

well, that's just mean on Dec 14, 2011 @ 10:21 am

What. were. you. thinking? This is terrible. Terribly yummy and tantalizing. Thank you. Thank you oh so much :)

Maybe if I do an extra round of Wii Fit or Zumba afterward? Will that cancel this mug cake out? Hmm, there's a thought!

mm yes on Dec 14, 2011 @ 08:45 pm

I actually made these before on a weekend and mmm its pretty delicious. Don't overbake though is the key cause its really easy to end up with a rubbery blob. I also think breaking off a piece of a chocolate bar would be amazing in the middle. mmm gooey goodness

During my Christmas break I was all over the 5 minute chocolate cake and I just discovered this recipe for a 5 minute coffee cake!

How amazing does this look?
