Cake in a Mug

Here's a fun way to make a quick dessert. It's so easy, a kid could do it. I hesitate to show this to my own kids, for fear they'll be whipping these up every day. If you try it with yours, let me know how they liked it. ;)

I got the recipe from Cheryl at nfptalk.

You'll need:
1 Coffee Mug that can withstand the magical forces of the microwave
1 Fork

4 Tablespoons All-Purpose Flour
4 Tablespoons Sugar
2 Tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 egg
3 Tablespoons Milk
3 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
3 Tablespoons Chocolate Chips
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Coat the inside of the mug with cooking spray. Add dry ingredients to the mug and mix well with the fork. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Add the milk, oil, and vanilla and mix again. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Place mug in microwave and cook for 3 minutes on full power (depending on your microwave...mine is 1100 watts).

Ooh and ahh as the cake puffs up beyond the constraints of the mug! (The photo didn't turn out. You'll have to use your imagination.)

Serves one. Or two if you're the generous sort.

Perhaps it would be better to serve it in the mug.
