    A small splash of vanilla
    3 Tbsp Chocolate Chips( if you really want to live dangerous)

    Add dry ingredients to mug mix wll with a fork. Add egg, mix thoroughly. Pour in milk ,oil and vanilla, mix well. Add chips if wanted) Put mug in microwave and cook for 3 minutes on 1000 watts microwave a little longer if you have a different wattage microwave. Cake will rise over the top of mug- Do not be alarm. Allow to cool a little; tip onto plate if desired. I usually eat it straight from the mug. I dip my spoon in icing and then dig into the cake and so on and so on. The reason its dangerous is you can now have chocolate cake anytime you want. I usually make up bags of the dry mix ingredients and then add the wet stuff whenever I want some cake!
    Initially this sounded great, but having looked at it again, I don't think I could get all those tablespoons of dry ingredients in a mug, let alone adding in the egg , milk and oil! Are these quantities really meant for one mug?

    Fie on you for ruining our New Year's resolutions!
    Coincidently, I have 6-mo old chickens that are just starting to lay, and they lay the cutest small eggs. These eggs are perfect for this recipe, as they equal about half a regular egg.
    Now do you have a pie-in-a-cup recipe?

    Tried this too and it is yummy too. I lke your idea of dipping the fork in the frosting rather than put a gob of frosting on the mug.

    I just saw a box of coffee mugs at a thrift store on Fri., if they are still there I think I will get them and using baggies to fill with dry ingredients along with the recipes included and give as presents to all the CNA's on my 3-11 shift.

    i made this at 10 p.m. one nite. it provided a good choc fix. only i put it in ceral bowl. seemed to me like it needed a little more room than a mug. worked just fine.

    this could be dangerous - I am going to try it but without the cocoa - I like white or yellow cake with milk chocolate frosting - my favorite combination. The microwave cake sounds wonderful - oh boy where are my stretch pants - I am going to need them...

    I just made myself a cup of chocolate cake! For those who are concerned about cup size (no, I am not talking A,B,orC) I'm talking coffee mug. I used a mug with an inside circumference of 10 inches and my cake rose to approx. 3 and 1/2 inches tall. I did do a few changes, I greased my mug with canola oil and started with the wet ingedients first so I could whip up my egg in the cup better. I didn't add the chocolate chips to the batter but sprinkled them on top when I took it out of the microwave. They made a nice gooey chocolate icing for my chocolate cake. I am eating it between typing. Yum!

    I use a large mug...the kind that you would put a cup of soup into...
    Also, make sure that you use pam or a bit of the oil in the mug before adding ingredients...helps with cleanup.
    A scoop of ice cream or a few marshmallows are very nice with this cake.

    I have packaged this dry mix up with a mug and instructions for what to add and cooking...this makes a nice gift for the office or teachers.

    We just tried it...great recipe. We have some healthy appetites inour household but I think I would split one with another in the future. We used large mugs and the cakes slipped right out when cooled. We had them with vanilla bean ice cream and my son added a splash of Kahlua. I too added the chocolate chips to the top instead of mixing in. We will be having it again!
