I got this recipe idea from my very thoughtful mother-in-law (Thanks Mary!), and after playing around for a while in the kitchen we came up with this very moist, nearly flour-less recipe.
This cake literally takes 5 min, start to finish. I even had just enough time to clean up while the cake cooked!
Emergency Chocolate Mug Cake
1 teaspoon flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons softened butter
Splash of vanilla extract
Add all ingredients to a large microwaveable coffee mug and mix well.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 2 minutes on high.
The cake may rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed it will sink back down as it cools.
Allow to cool for a couple minutes, and invert onto a plate if desired.
This cake is somewhat fun to share, but it is more fun to hog it all for yourself!
