AND SINFUL.YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!*
I received an e-mail from two Karens in my family, both of whom love to try new recipes. The title of it was "The Most Dangerous Chocolate Cake In The World" - intriguing, I know. So of course, I open the e-mail and what was written before me was the recipe for a 5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake. Sounds too good to be true, but I am here to attest that I made it, tried it, and love it. Five minutes is truly all it takes with a few simple household ingredients. Grab a large microwaveable mug and add the following:
4 Tbsp all purpose flour
4 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp cocoa
3 Tbsp milk
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
3 Tbsp chocolate chips (optional, but it is so much better with these)
Splash of vanilla extract
Add dry ingredients first and just mix with a spoon. Next add the egg and stir. Then add the remaining ingredients, mix well, and you should have what looks like the concoction (pictured) above. Place in microwave and heat on high for 3 minutes. Mixture will rise out of the mug while cooking, but will not overflow. Remove from microwave and turn mug upside down on a plate to serve. The cake will pop right out! Let cool for 2 minutes and enjoy!
I like a side of whipped cream or strawberries for the ultimate indulgence. Feel free to add any syrups or toppings - it will only make it better! This also works great for a quick and easy recipe for last minute dinner guests - you can make them all individual, decadent desserts.
