Evil goodness.

Let me say first off, this was shared with me. By a "good" friend. Yes, I put the good in quotes because honestly, I question her motivation. I think it is fair to say that I'm a tad obsessed with chocolate. She knows this. And providing me with the most dangerous of all cake recipes puts our friendship in question. 

Either (1) she truly adores me and wants to ensure happiness is never more than five minutes away or (2) she knows I will likely eat this two - three times a week and wants to ensure I look horrid in a swimsuit prior to our annual lake reunion.  I'd like to give her the benefit of the doubt, but she is spending a month in London this summer and I fear my jealousy is coloring my judgment. Just a bit. 

My motivation in sharing it with you is clear: It is my mission to share happiness and joy with the world. That and jiggly thighs. 


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 coffee mug (microwave safe)

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 - of course we are using} and vanilla extract, and mix again. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts. {2.5 minutes was enough for me - watch it closely or it will be a rubbery mess} 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.
