The Most Dangerous Chocolate Cake

My friend told me about this cake she makes in the microwave and so I looked it up online. It's called the most dangerous cake in the world because it only takes 5 minutes to make. Here it is.

4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (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 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 share!)

I didn't add chocolate chips to mine, but I did make a caramel sauce with a little bit of butter, brown sugar and a tiny bit of milk in the microwave and poured it over the cake. It tastes amazing like that. I let it cool in the fridge for a little bit before I ate it.

Another note, I used pamela's baking mix instead of flour and it turned out great (for all those who can't eat wheat).

I love this recipe too and I agree that it's dangerous! For those interested, I've created some more healthy variations to the recipe using whole grains.

Oh, yes, that looks very, very dangerous. Must try it...with the caramel sauce on top.
