Dangerously Divine Chocolate Cake in a Mug

Are you ready for a divinely sinful treat! One that you can whip up quick as a wink and not have to share! This is so rich and chocolate and so quick and easy you won't believe it!

Dangerously Divine Chocolate Cake in a Mug

Serves 1

4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips
A small dash of vanilla flavoring
1 microwaveable coffee mug--regular size or soup size

You can mix this right in the mug if you'd like and no need to grease it.

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 and vanilla flavoring... and mix again.

Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes on at full power. 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!

You can frost it if you'd like, but it's so rich and moist there's no need to. Try adding some whip cream on top. You can also use 2 Mounds or Almond Joy candy bar pieces and push them into the batter to bake or top with Hershey's Kisses or even a Reese's Cup. Other ideas--drizzle top with hot fudge or Hershey's chocolate syrup, caramel sauce, marshmallow cream and then chocolate frosting. Let your chocolate imagination run free and enjoy!!

These little mug cakes also make great gifts for friends and family. Either bake one up for someone and let them keep the mug or package all the dry ingredients and tuck into a mug along with the recipe and let them bake their own.
