5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

I've had a few people send me this recipe. I have yet to try it but thought I'd post it in case anyone's interested in trying it.

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.

Yum! I'm going to have to try this - it's probably just like those "Warm Delights" that you can buy, and we like those when they're on sale. :)

I also got this emailed to me, and tried it. It is surprisingly delicous!
