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 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...Yummmmm
Okay, this is too easy and I have to try it! It's not that I want cake, it's the challenge I want to try! It'll only be dangerous to my kids who can whip this up fast!
I just got this recipe in my email as well... cant wait to try it! Thanks for posting!
Thanks for posting this! They did this recently at my son's kindergarten class but he couldn't participate because he's GFCF. He just took one of his "special" cupcakes with him that day. I wanted to try this with his gf flour and rice milk, but lost the recipe she gave me!
I made ths once, and threw away the recipe. Sorry to tell you ladies, but I thought it was pretty gross... Maybe you'll think it's better than I did though.
I'd like to read what anyone says after trying this recipe. Looks like alot of egg compared to the other ingredients.
Sorry, I too couldn't wait to try it. The idea sounded great and even starting thinking about great Christmas gifts for it.
The idea is cool, but the cake is gross. It comes out very heavy, but it does come out of the mug although the idea of eating it in the mug was cool too.
I think the idea is there, but needs to be tweeked a lot. BUT the author of this is right....if you want a FAST chocolate cake, this is it. Just not a good one. Sorry. I really tried to like it.
Thanks for testing it out Vicky!
Yeah, it's pretty yucky! It turns out sort of rubbery. Just one of those things that's too good to be true I guess!
Maybe Jonah was lucky he didn't get to have any! He loves his "special diet" cupcakes!
Yeah, I thought it was rubbery, too. The texture wasn't great at all. One of my friends altered the recipe and made it into a pineapple upside down cake that she liked. I'll try to get her recipe and post it.
I think most baked goods cooked in the microwave have a yucky texture which may be hard to avoid. I consider this an "I'm desperate for something chocolate and have to have something NOW" recipe!! Speed over quality.
I've tried it and liked it, my husband did too. I've passed it around and have gotten great feedback, we ate it warm with icecream on top.
I wonder if you followed the recipe but used only 1/2 the egg.
Maybe whip up the raw egg in a small cup then use 1 T. of it or what ever might be half. This could mean you might be forced to make two!
Sounds like too much egg would make this too rubbery.
I think I might have to try this for science!
One more idea...maybe you could substitute pastry flour for the flour if you have it... for science!
I will definately use the chocolate chips in my experiment!
I can't wait to try this.
