Chocolate Cake in 5 minutes

Every week the knitter's website Ravelry posts a newletter. This has been going on for 26 weeks now. I have never read one until last week. Last week I read the funnies section and this is what I found.

For those without Ravelry access the post is a recipe for a 5 minute chocolate mug cake. Chocolate cake in just 5 minutes!! YUM! Here's the recipe:


4 tablespoons cake flour(that’s plain flour, not self-raising)
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil (probably too much. 3 teaspoons seems to work better!)
3 tablespoons chocolate chips(optional)
a small splash of vanilla essence
1 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 essence, 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).

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!

I haven't made it yet, but if you try it let me know how it turns out!
