WHAT?! You can make chocolate cake for ONE in THREE MINUTES?!?

Why, yes you can! I know that I already blogged today, but this is just for all of you guys and dolls that need something easy for your next "Day Off". I am big on cooking and will go all out to make some gourmet meal with all of the courses, but I know that not everyone is that way. In fact, I believe I am the only one out of my friends that will go hog-wild when it comes to meal planning. But in any event, this was sent to me today and I thought those that like things quick and easy would appreciate it.
Ok, so here it comes:



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 (MicroSafe)

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 mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.

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).

I tell ya, take at look at these pics to see the before and after. Hey, anyone that tries this one send me an email and tell me whether you liked it or not. I would love to hear your thoughts....

Have a Happy Day Off, even if that's not for a day or two....I know I will!
