5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar or substitute for artificial sweetener if diabetic.
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


This says mix in mug- but depending on the shape of your mug, you can also mix it in a bowl and pour into the mug.



Add dry ingredients to glass 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 on high.
The cake might 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 but you just might want it all for yourself)
