5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

This is the most dangerous cake recipe. It has been passed around at work and I wish to share it with you:

4 tbsp. flour
4 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. cocoa
1 egg
3 tbsp. oil
3 tbsp. milk
3 tbsp. 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 chocolate chips, (if using) and vanilla extract and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes on high.
The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!

Allow to cool a little, and tip onto a plate, if desired.

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!


  1. This is good cake and better ffwith store bought icing.You can leave this container of icing in your fridge for weeks.

  2. Oooo...or use the chocolate chips as icing. Let them melt on top and spread.
    "Weigh" to go, Cathy! My waist, hips, thighs and butt all thank you now!
