i wasn't all that interested when i first saw this in my inbox~ The most dangerous chocolate cake recipe in the world- didn't even bother to open it. then i received another one that says- Chocolate cake in a mug in 5 minutes...oh well since i was doing yet another inbox spring cleaning i opened it just so that i can get on & delete it.
i was very skeptical when i saw the recipe...
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
A small splash of vanilla extract and your favorite tipple
1 large coffee mug
ok it sounds simple enough & i do have all the ingredients at home, feeling rather adventurous i tried the recipe last nite.
Add dry ingredients to your largest mug and mix well. make sure it's those starbuck type of mug or the mixture will drip when rise.
Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
Add the chocolate chips (if using), vanilla extract and a drop or two of your favorite tipple, then mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts (high).
( there is suppose to be a picture of the mug in the microwave oven~ however, since my domestic cleaner- kak mis forgot to clean it up the last time she came around... i had to leave the picture outlah...;P)
if u think cupcake is too small, try mugcake instead..
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.
If you're feeling very very naughty, cover liberally in Bailey's Irish Cream.
variation to the above, i covered the cake with peanut butter+ chocolate topping, or if u like~ have em with vanilla sauce or even a scoop or two of ice creams of ur own choice.
And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world?
Because now you are only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night! &..
here's an evil suggestion~ it's so quick & easy u can now make it at the pantry & enjoy ur mugcake at the office too...hehehe >;P....
try it, it only takes 2 minutes of preparation & 3 minutess to cook in the microwave oven...
it's particularly brilliant as an instant after dinner dessert or when u have an unexpected guest over..
oh it doesn't really have to be in a mug, any microwave oven proof dish will do too..
