my mom sent me this random forward email yesterday...
it had the recipe for making a single serving of cake, in a mug!
genius! and you cook it in the microwave- 3 minutes!
i totally know this isn't healthy, but what fun that is!
and yummy too!
here's how it turned out:

within minutes it popped out of the mug,
adia and i were super impressed!
it was devoured within minutes!! :)

we split it in half and devoured the whole thing!
it is a bit chewy, cuz it's made in the microwave....
but those gooey chocolate chips sure are amazing!

here's the recipe:

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.
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).


  1. i really wish you hadn't told me about this. you know i'm gonna make this all the time now. oh well... weight watchers will just have to wait a little. :)

  2. This is not a recipe I need to know! But it sure looks yummy.
