5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE

(I was sent this recipe by a friend; haven't tried it yet but it looks tempting!)

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) 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).

ETA This does work. It comes way over the top of the mug (and I was using a half pint mug) before subsiding, and there's enough for two. The texture is quite solid, but it's not a bad taste, and I think I'll try it again with smaller quantities.
