Jan Doesn't Mean to be Evil - 5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE

This was just sent to me by my friend & co-worker, Jan, who diabolically tried to tempt me to the dark side with chocolate and pretzels this afternoon. Now she sends this recipe. The "Most Dangerous Recipe In The World""


  • 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

  1. Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
  2. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
  3. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
  4. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.
  5. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!
  6. Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
  7. EAT! (This can serve 2 if you feel like sharing)

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!
