5 minute chocolate cake in a cup

Cup of cake

A recipe that makes me happy.

4 Tbsp Flour
4 Tbsp Sugar
2 Tbsp Cocoa powder
1 egg
3 Tbsp Milk
3 Tbsp Oil
tiny splash of vanilla
handfull of chocolate chips (optional)
Large mug

Put dry ingredients in mug, mix well. Add wet ingredients and mix well with fork until smooth. Add chocolate chips if desired. Microwave for 3 minutes. Batter will rise out of cup - don't be alarmed! Use knife to separate from cup, turn out onto plate and eat up.

I can't believe you referred to chocolate chips as "optional".



I'm not sure that we can be friends any more...

I was feeling hungry so I decided to distract myself by getting on the computer.

Well, there goes my diet plan! Peter and I had agreed that the only sweets allowed in the house will be those we make from scratch.

Sigh, I thought we would eat less because it would be more difficult to make. :)

1. Beat the egg into the dry ingredients, then add the milk, oil, vanilla, and chocolate chips.

2. And the most important....Narly is absolutely right. Chocolate chips are not optional!
