Oh this is DANGEROUS!

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

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).

We liked it but found that it tasted kind of bland and rubbery. So we decided to try an alternative experiment.

5 Minute Cake Mix Cake
1/2 cup Cake Mix
1 egg
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup oil

Follow the same directions as above. We spiced it up with some powdered sugar.

Your blog is making me hungry. This looks really good think I will try it... and of course I will use the powered sugar idea.
