    4 tablespoon flour
    4 tablespoon sugar
    2 tablespoon cocoa
    1 egg
    3 tablespoon milk
    3 tablespoon oil
    3 tablespoon chocolate chips( optional)
    a small splash of vanilla extract
    1 large coffee mug(microwaveable)


    Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix ewll. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk, oil and mix well. Add chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, mix again. Put mug into 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 ouut onto a plate if desired.

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

    And why isthis the most dangerous cake recipe in the world??
    Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of day or night!

    Love this - can't wait 5 minutes so I put up all the dry ingredients in several little snack bags - all I have to do is stir in the wet stuff and press a button. Makes nice little Christmas gifts.

    Sorry, but I don't believe the words "virtuous" and "chocolate" can be used in the same post!!! Doesn't that just seem not right?? LOL!

    I make this for the grandkids. I put the dry ingredients in a small ziploc plastic sandwich bags so it is premixed. I then add the 'wet' ingredients. This makes putting the recipe together even faster!

    I just want to double check that nothing is missing from recipe. Did you use self rising flour for this recipe. Cause I see nothing about what baking powder or such to make the cake rise!! Please don't beat me for asking, I just dont want to waste ingredients and it not come out right!

    y'know I have found recipies just like what you are asking, Amish friendship bread is one, I have 2 recipies of this one says self rising the other says plain.

    someone told me if you ever see a recipe that just states flour, go with the self rising flour.

    And how are you to know if you don't ask??? hope problem is solved, have fun!! MAry

    Thank you!! Went to use the recipe , was putting all together and discovered I had thrown out the cocoa apparently a while back. Had a triple choc cake mix in house tho. So I opened and used 8 tbsp of this complete w/ choco chips already in(surprise )and used your egg and liquids measurements. Came out perfect . Just put the open mix in a reseal bag for later use.

    It's good to have chocolate available in 5 minutes.
