Most Dangerous Chocolate Cake EVER!

My uncle loves to send me recipes that he finds on the internet. Just the other day he sent me "The Most Dangerous Cake" recipe. Interesting! So interesting that I just had to try it out to see if was for real. Here you go. Don't say I didn't warn you!!


5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake


4 T flour
4T sugar
2T cocoa
1 egg
3T milk
3 T oil
3 T chocolate chips (optional)
a small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug

Spray your mug with PAM. (I forgot to do this and I had a few chips stick to the bottom of my mug.)

Add dry ingredients to mug and mix well. My mug is 4 1/2 inches tall.

Beat egg and milk in a seperate dish. Add oil.

Add liquids to the dry ingredients and mix. Add vanilla and chocolate chips, mix again.

Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes at 1000 watts. (my microwave is 11oo watts so I cooked it for 2 1/2 minutes.) The cake will rise over the top of the mug, don't be alarmed! (This is tooo cool. My cake went at least 3 inches higher than my rim.) (this is right after i took the picture above, the cake goes back down into the cup right away.)





Allow to cool a little and tip out onto a plate if desired. (this can serve 2 if you feel like sharing or in my case, 3 little kids)

So why is this the most dangerous cake recipe you ask?? Because now you are only 5 minutes away from a chocolate cake ANY TIME!!




Remember, I am not to blame for any weight gain, acne, chocolate cravings etc. What you do with this recipe is your own fault! :) For those out of country, T = Tablespoon.

This recipe and varitations are floating all over the internet so I have no clue who is the orgianl owner of this recipe.

I just got that recipe last week, Nathan has wanted me to make it but I haven't since I was out of milk. I will have to try it now!

Fortunately I checked the Weight Watchers points for this .... 23 points! Yikes, that's an entire day for me! No wonder you posted a disclaimer with it :-). I'll hold out until I can split it with a few people. It sounds yummy!

Yummy! I have a similar recipe for baking a cake in a jar but this is better because it is hot cake. Wahhh...I'm not sure I need to know how to have a fresh baked cake that fast! haha Thanks for sharing.

Okay, you can say you aren't responsible, but I still hold you totally responsible for every pound I gain due to this recipe. This looks like a good one to have on hand when those nasty old chocolate cravings pop up! lol Thanks Amber.

Oh yeah, I am making this with each of the grandkids as they come over alone. My DH might eat one piece of cake so I just don't make them often anymore. Now I can have a piece of warm cake whenever I want. Thanks for this recipe. Kheila
