If you’re ever in that terrifying zone where your pantry is so bare that you are considering making pudding just so you can eat something sweet, try this! I was a disbeliever but delightedly surprised in the end.

In just five minutes, you can actually make AND eat chocolate cake!



3 tablespoons flour
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
1 egg
1 tablespoon oil
a small splash of vanilla extract

Add dry ingredients to coffee mug, and mix well. Add liquids and mix well.

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.
