5 minute Chocolate Cake?

A friend shared a recipe for a 5 minute chocolate cake. I searched the internet looking for where it originated and couldn't find the source. I tweaked it a bit and it wasn't half bad. Now when I'm packing lunches in the morning and find I don't have a dessert, voila! Chocolate cake.


1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 TBS cocoa (unsweetened)
1 egg white or 2 TBS egg beaters
3 TBS milk
3 TBS oil (butter would work, & I may try cutting down on this amount, but I also don't want it to stick in the coffee cup.)
2-3 TBS chocolate chips (optional)
1/8 tsp vanilla

Add dry ingredients to a large mug, and mix well. Mix in egg, oil, vanilla, & milk. Stir in chocolate chips.

Microwave on high 3 minutes (best if using 1000 watt microwave.) The cake might rise over the top of the mug, especially if not using a large mug. Grab a fork and enjoy, or turn mug upside down, place on plate and share with a friend or two.

Since I cook so seldom, I had not taken a serious look at your recipe site. Some good stuff here! And great photos. I'll but a link on my post to here -- great to see the photo.
