Dangerous Chocolate Cake


Today’s entry is dedicated to my friend Amanda who I love like a daughter (well not quite,  ‘cuz that’s to the moon and back).  We’ve taken a delicious journey together and now she has chosen a new place to dine.  This is her recipe.

Fot those moments when you have just GOTAA HAVE CHOCOLATE!


Dangerous 5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

1 Coffee Mug

4 tablespoons flour (that’s plain flour, not self-rising)

4 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons baking cocoa

1 egg

3 tablespoons milk

3 tablespoons oil

3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional) some nuts (optional)

Small splash of vanilla

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well . Add the egg and mix thoroughly.

Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.

Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla, and mix again.

Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes on high.

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. EAT!

(this can serve 2 if you want to share)

Wash it down with a glass of full-bodied red wine.  Feel all those anti-oxidants cleansing your body. This is my idea of healthy living.

And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world?   Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!
