Dangerous Chocolate Cake-in-a-Mug

This recipe is perfect for the singles and couples with no kids, or for anyone who needs just a little bit of chocolate to satisfy a craving! I had no idea you could make a chocolate cake in a mug in your microwave.

I received this recipe after signing up for free chocolate from Haydee Chocolatier. I haven't received them yet, but did get this in an email from them soon after.
1 - coffee mug (microwave-safe)
4 T. - cake flour (plain, not self-rising)
4 T. - sugar
2 T. - cocoa
1 - egg
3 T. - milk
3 T. - oil
1 - splash of vanilla
3 T. - chocolate chips (Optional-or use 4 chocolate kisses Like I did!)

Add dry ingredients to the mug; mix well with a fork. Add egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in milk, oil, and vanilla, and mix well. Add chips, if using.
Put mug in the microwave, and cook for three minutes at 1,000 watts. Cake will rise over the top of the mug -- do not be alarmed. When finished, carefully remove mug from microwave and allow to cool a little. Tip onto a small plate prior to serving, if desired. Yields one generous serving or two "more virtuous" servings.
It's not the best chocolate cake, but it is good. It's perfect if you're craving a little chocolate, but don't want to make a whole cake! Let me know if you try it!

Big 'T' is for tablespoon, right?

Yes T means tablespoon! It is really good - I'm sure I'll make it again sometime when I "need" chocolate :)
