Warning: I have not tried this but my friend sent it to me tonight, uh, maybe I should be worried!
DANGEROUS CHOCOLATE CAKE-IN-A-MUG
1 coffee mug
4 Tbsp. flour (plain, not self-rising)
4 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. cocoa
1 egg
3 Tbsp. milk
3 Tbsp. oil
Small splash of vanilla
3 Tbsp. chocolate chips, optional
Add dry ingredients to mug, mix well with a fork. Add egg, mix thoroughly. Pour in milk and oil and vanilla, mix well. Add chips, if using. Put mug in microwave, and cook for three minutes on 1000 watts. Cake will rise over top of mug--do not be alarmed! Allow to cool a little; tip onto a plate if desired. Eat!
(This can serve two 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 five minutes away from chocolate cake any time of the day or night!!!***

You have changed my life FOREVER! I made the cake and posted pictures of the outcome on my blog but directed everyone here for the recipe.

Sounds like lunch this afternoon! Certainly can't pass this one up! I wonder if I can put 4 mugs in the microwave at once. The idea of sharing is so noble of you...Cup O' Cake...I love it!

Gosh ladies, I never ever expected anyone to make this - I posted it for informational purposes only:)

Carole and I always say it's a good thing she is in Reno, many miles from here. She likes making desserts and I prefer main dishes. We'd be the size of a house in a month!
