4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
a small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mugAdd 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.
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!
Chocolate Pudding in a Mug
In the early days of microwave ovens, a recipe like this was always part of the demonstrations given by manufacturers’ home economists. It proved how fast and how much fun the microwave could be. It still does.
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 tablespoons sugar
3/4 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. In a large mug (at least 12 ounces), dissolve the cornstarch, cocoa, and sugar in the milk.
2. Microwave on high for 90 seconds, or until mixture boils.
3. Stir in the vanilla extract.
4. Chill in the refrigerator at least 1 hour.
Substitutions: Instead of cocoa, use 3 tablespoons chocolate bits. Stir them into the hot pudding with the vanilla. Instead of vanilla, use orange zest, grated or very finely julienned.
Idea from my friends. Let me know if any good! Will also try it.
You have KRISTI to thank for this one!
