5-minute chocolate cake

Email from my daughter

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 (MicroSafe)

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, and 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.
EAT ! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).
**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!


The cake is a lie!

(Only about 30% of the board will get this joke. The rest should go buy Portal)

Delicious Cake is a lie!

Also, that recipe sounds scrumptious. :yes: I must try it!

Is the 30% on this board really intense “gamers”??

Portal is hardly an ‘intense’ game haha. I’d place it much closer to Wii-like.

Wow. I’m going to have to hide this recipe from my sd! lol

I know what I’ll be making tomorrow. :slight_smile:

There’s no sense crying over every mistake, you just keep on trying 'til you run out of cake.

The wife had me write down the recipe. We’re both chocoholics.


I’m going RIGHT NOW to see if I can make this gluten- and dairy-free. O_O

I’m sorry to say I got it. =( That game kicks butt! =D

Moocows are people too. :sad:

Why are you sorry to say it?

You’re in the majority. (And it’s an uber supermajority)

  1. Yes. But I save their milk for baby moocows, because it makes my immune system spaz out. =)

  2. A majority?! Cool! Maybe we could get Yoshi in office. @_@

Yoshi is an Italian national. He can’t run. =\ Not old enough yet either.

No fair. None of the good games come from America.

But can you tell me whether that cake is ready or not ready?

I assert that is is both, so long as you do not look inside the microwave

I got that, too.

oh my bad!:freaked:

he he. i’m not a gamer so i would not know.

Wow I am gonna make this right now!!
