Last year at Christmas time, I needed something to give out to 16 employees. I looked for something personal and affordable. I had seen the 5 minute chocolate cake recipe and had made one. It was simply delicious and way too easy to make.
I like this recipe because you can have a treat at any time in the microwave. It is quick, easy, and low on calories. It can also be stored on the shelf for an instant snack. No need to bake a whole cake.
I am not a cake connoisseur but this is tasty and definitely quick and also thrifty because you don't have to bake an entire cake (which might not all be eaten before spoiling) to fulfill a craving. If you like small portions, it's good for two servings.
You won't believe this ooey-gooey cake was made in the microwave in 90 seconds. You don't need to add an egg to it, and that's actually the key to why this dessert is extra moist and delicious. A regular cake usually has one to two eggs, so why add one to a little mug cake? This is an excellent time and ingredient saver for those times when you've got a sweet tooth.
I found this new recipe which is not probaby new to you guys, but it is to me. It is the cup cake that you bake in the microwave, perfect for me. I tried it out today, and it was great!

5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
A small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug (MicroSafe)
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. 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).

About a year ago there was a recipe here for a cake made in a coffee mug. Cake (or brownie) mix and some other ingredients were combined in a mug then microwaved.
I have a question about the chocolate cake in a mug. It was really easy to do but it was flat tasting.
