National Chocolate Cake Day! Hooray!

See this?

It's going to become a cake in just THREE minutes!  A single-serving (or two if you want to be generous with your loved one) of yummy, warm, chocolately goodness just for YOU, in less than five minutes!!

See?  Mmmmm!
Here's how you do it:

4 Tbs flour
4 Tbs sugar
2 Tbs cocoa powder
1 egg
3 Tbs milk
3 Tbs oil
3 Tbs dark chocolate chips
dash of vanilla

Mix the flour, sugar and cocoa in a large, microwave-safe mug.  Add egg and mix well.  Add milk and oil, stir until fully combined.  Stir in vanilla and chocolate chips.  Cook in microwave for 3 minutes (for 1000-1100 Watt oven -- it's OKAY if the cake rises above the edge of the mug!).  Let cool for a minute or two and then invert onto plate.  Share with a friend if you like, or enjoy it all by yourself!!


  1. We just made these -- YUM! Substituted white chocolate chips for some of the dark chips. Served with a side of ice cream and caramel sauce on top. Divine! -Cori
