5 Minute Chocolate Cake!?!

Early...This A.M.  to my surprise I found this awesome video on how to make 5 minute chocolate cake! So I felt inspired to try this on my own. Trust me this recipe satisfies even the latest "late night" craving!



For written recipe and instructions visit: instructables

You will Need:



A microwave
coffee mug
4 tablespoons flour - make sure you measure it right - or the cake is a lie!
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
2 tablespoons whisked egg - 1 egg is too much, 1 egg white is too eggy, 1 yolk is too dense, but 2 tblsp is just right!
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips
*splash vanilla or other flavoring - try peppermint or cinnamon
For a fudgier version, omit egg!


Add all of the dry ingredients to the mug and mix.
Add the egg and combine well. It gets pretty pasty at the point.
Stir in milk and oil.
Add chocolate chips* and splash of vanilla. Stir well.

*if you don't have chocolate chips, try a broken up candy bar - I can't stress how much this amps the awesomeness of your cake
Microwave for 3 minutes in a 1000w oven, or 4 minutes in a 700w oven.
It will start to crown over the top of the mug. Don't panic! It will collapse once the heat stops.
This cake is still good half an hour out of the oven. In fact, I think it gets better the longer it sits, but I can't speak to how it does after that, since there's never any left!
