Celebrate with a Cup-o-Cake

If you are still reeling and giddy over yesterday’s inauguration but didn’t have an opportunity to properly celebrate with a piece of ‘event cake’, don’t despair.

A few days ago, I was forwarded the recipe that is listed below, and if you are a dessert lover, and particularly a bona fide ‘Chocoholic’ you are going to love this.

Wish I knew who originally created this gem as I would like to give them the proper attribution because – it is the most dangerous cake recipe ever – I think even Julia Child (IMHO - the most recognized culinary diva of the last 100 years) would have approved! “Bon appetite!”

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

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, which I would recommend) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts (high – although microwave temperatures can vary). The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed! Allow cooling a little, and tipping out onto a plate if desired, or partake straight from the cup.

ENJOY! (This can serve two if you want to feel slightly more virtuous). And, why is this “the most dangerous cake recipe” in the world? Because now we are all only five minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!
