My sister Jody sent this recipe to me in an email. I thought it was interesting and I have never heard of it before, even though it's all over the internet!! I can't find who the original recipe owner is so if anyone know, please let me know!!
Here's how it goes:
A RECIPE EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW
The Most Dangerous Cake Recipe
5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
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 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 microwave safe 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.
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!
You are going to print this out straight away, aren't you!!
I thought this would be so fun to do with the kids!
Carlee had her own made with the egg replacer. I was curious to see if they would come out the same!
Here it is rising in the microwave.
It sank right before we took it out!
It came out of the mug easily. To me the cake was really heavy, dense, tough, but the flavor was good. don't know if it was stirred too long from some little helpers! Next time I may try and add something else to make it a little lighter. Notice there is no baking powder or soda in the recipe!! Hum! Anyone have any suggestions? I know my cake buddies will know!
