Dangerous Coffee Mug Cake

A while ago we heard from a guy we used to work with on the Miss Marquette. He was kind enough to send us a recipe for "Coffee Mug Cake".

Looks like a mug full doesn't it?? This is what it looks like going into the microwave.

This is what it looks like coming out of the microwave....

And this is what it looks like just before you take a fork to it and eat it!!

Here is the recipe for this single or double serving 5 minute cake:

1 coffee mug

4 T flour--not self rising

4 T sugar

2 T baking cocoa

1 Egg

3 T milk

3 T oil

3 T chocolate chips (optional)

Small splash of vanilla

In the coffee mug mix thoroughly the flour, sugar and cocoa. Add the egg and mix well. Pour in the milk and oil mixing well.

Add the chocolate chips and vanilla, mixing well. Place the 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 will not overflow. Allow to cool a little and tip out onto a plate......EAT!!!

This is called the "Dangerous Coffee Mug Cake", because now chocolate cake is now only 5 minutes away at any time of the day or night....yup dangerous is the right word for this!!
