5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

My aunt cecy sent me this email a while ago and I always had intention to try it out. Well about 2 weeks ago, Luke and I got a serious cake itch but I really didn't feel like taking the time out to make a whole cake. It was also really late and we didn't want to wait. Then I remembered this email and luckily had everything I needed in my pantry. It was pretty yummy. Not AMAZING, but it definetly got rid of the itch. 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

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

Note: These pictures were part of the email that was sent to me, not my own.
