Danger Ahead

This afternoon I was avoiding a work project and happened upon this recipe. Of course I had to drop everything and try it, in the interest of public service. What kind of friend would I be to find this recipe and NOT test it before telling you about it?

So here goes. Personal Mug Chocolate Cake

Simple list of ingredients:

Mix in a mug:

4 T flour
4 T sugar
2 T cocoa

Add one egg, mix well

Add 3 T milk + 3 T oil + small splash vanilla, mix well (It looks like really, really thick hot chocolate.)
(optional but who wouldn't?) Mix in 3 T chocolate chips

Microwave on HIGH for 3 minutes. (It will rise above the mug, don't worry!)
(this is in the microwave - you get the idea of how high it goes, and it did spill over the edge a small bit, but it's not hard to clean up. Next time I might try making it in a pyrex measuring cup.)
It does sink back down a bit when you remove it from the microwave.

Let cool, remove from mug (optional) and enjoy!
And the verdict? It's a bit chewy, sort-of brownie-like, and very rich. And truly, it's enough for 2 people. (for me to say that, you KNOW it's rich.)
It'll do, pig, It'll do.
