About 5 years ago, my grandmother sent me a recipe for the most dangerous cake recipe in the world.  Why is it so dangerous you might ask?  

Because it takes precisely 5 minutes from start to finish, for this cake.  

Very dangerous indeed…and also very convenient for when that infamous chocolate craving strikes you during the day.  

I’ve made many variations of this cake…a coffee mug cake, a strawberry mug cake, you name it.  You can really make any variation of this cake, put the ingredients in the mug, and in a few minutes, cake. Magnificent!

My Grandma’s Chocolate Mug Cake:

4 tbs cake flour

4 tbs sugar

2 tbs cocoa 

3 tbs chocolate chips

1 egg

3 tbs milk

3 tbs vegetable oil

1 tsp vanilla

2 tbs caramel

Add dry ingredients to a mug and mix well.  Add the egg, oil and milk and mix well.  Add the chocolate chips and vanilla and mix again. Put your mug in the microwave and cook on high for 1 minute.  Pull the mug out of the microwave and add the caramel on top.  It will sink down into the cake on its own so just drizzle it on top.  Cook for another minute in the microwave.  Then EAT! Straight from the mug 🙂
