it's a miracle!!

well, maybe not a miracle... but close.

have you fallen victim to the supposedly awesome mug cake?

i have.

usually you end up with an eggy puck of rubbery nastiness. i had zero expectations when i tried this one but i was very pleasantly surprised!

i think that part of the problem with most mug cakes is the egg.

this one has none and VOILLA!

i have modified a recipe that i found that was ok... this is waaaaaay better!

what you'll need:

4 tbsp flour
1tsp-3tsp sugar (depends how you like it)
3 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
generous pinch salt\

4 tbsp milk
1-2 tbsp oil

chocolate chips - however many you feel like

what you need to do:

mix all dry ingredients in mug with fork
add milk and oil
mix until smooth and make sure you scrape along the bottom of the mug or you'll get flour pockets
stir in chocolate chips

microwave for 1 min 45 sec to 2 minutes depending on your microwave.

top with goodies... last night i topped mine with fudge and then drizzled it with caramel. ice cream on top is delicious.... sink a spoonful of peanut butter into the middle before you cook it for a yummy variation... pretty much limitless.


disclaimer: please do not blame me if you want to make one of these every night. they take less than 5 minutes from beginning to end, and are super yummy. not my fault.
