SINFUL CHOCOLATE CAKE IN A MUG
1 coffee mug
4 Tbsp. cake flour (plain, not self-rising)
4 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. cocoa
3 Tbsp. milk
3 Tbsp. oil
Small splash of vanilla
3 Tbsp. chocolate chips, optional
Add dry ingredients to mug, mix well with a fork. Add egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in milk, oil, and vanilla. Mix well. Add chips if using.
Put mug in microwave, and cook for three minutes on high. Cake will rise over the top of the mug–do not be alarmed!
Allow to cool a little; tip onto plate if desired. Eat!
(This can serve two if you want to feel less guilty.) 🙂
And if you drizzle some ice cream fudge topping over the cake while it’s still warm, you’ll think you’ve died and gone to heaven. Yummy!
Here’s a tip: Measure out the dry ingredients and store them in an airtight jar. Then when you get ready to indulge your sinful craving, just dump into your mug and add the egg, milk, oil, and vanilla.
Grab yourself a throw and sit in front of a cozy fire. It’s the ultimate guilty pleasure!
Happy New Year everyone!
