Chocolate Cake!

Malliga, one of our store staff members just sent this email to our internal mailing list. too bad we don't have these ingredients at the store!

I haven't tried this yet but if it's really good then
we're all in trouble!!! "Mmmmmmm, yummy chocolatey trouble!" ~Malliga

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

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!

I've tried this and it is pretty good. It is more like a brownie than a cake. It does taste better with a little salt added to the dry ingredients.
