5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

From what I understand, this recipe has been floating around the internet for some time now. I received it about a week ago from a friend in Seattle and decided last night was the night to give it a try. It has a different texture than one baked in the oven and is more heavy and rich. It's not that great, but will do if you're desperate! lol Next time I'd add a pinch of salt. I used this old bunny mug just in case it exploded or something!!!!

A little funky looking!
I only ate half.
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
A small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug (micro safe)
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 extract. Mix again. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts. 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. This can serve two. (I beat the egg separately before adding)
Have a great chocolately day!
