5 Minutes Away

I came across this recipe on sounds really yummy... Really, only 5 minutes? I'm going to have to remember this recipe.


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 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!

*I finally tried this. It was good, but not great. It was fun that it only took a few minutes and fun to eat cake out of a mug. We put chocolate syrup on ours because it wasn't that great and needed something else. If you try this, you should definitely put chocolate chips in it or something!


  1. I actually tried this! I had it for breakfast, don't judge me ;). It wasn't too bad! I don't know that I'll do it again, but it was fun!

  2. yum that sounds good!!! I will have to try it out- I'm a sucker for chocolate

  3. So I tried this...and it's not that great. It needs frosting or something. I don't know that I'll do it again either, but I agree with you Lisa--it was fun! But I think I would rather make take the time and make a really good chocolate cake. :)
