Cooking a chocolate cake in a mug may seem foolhardy and a little unsafe. YOURLifeChoices has a quick Chocolate Mug Cake recipe that works and pictures to prove it.

Ingredients (serves one, or two if you're feeling virtuous)

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

Method
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 (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, or eat straight from the mug.
And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world? Because now we are all only five minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night.
You are going to print this out straight away, aren't you?
