5 Minute Chocolate Cake

End of March

We are greatful for wonderful friends that find fun things for us to make and EAT!! Friends from our old neighborhood came for a playdate and brought a fun activity for everyone. We made 5 Minute Chocolate Cake. Really, it takes 5 minutes to mix, and cook (microwave), and not much more time to eat. We had a fun time and have tried it 2 more times since.

Here we are sharing our fun with our Tuesday playdate.
We thought Grandma and Grandpa would enjoy it and they did.

They went home with a copy to make it at home.

If you want to enjoy some cake also, here you go...I warn you, read the warning at the bottom before you start.

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 (We do not have large coffee mugs so I used a soup mug and a small bowl )

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 (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!
