Need a little comfort food on this rainy dull day???
Sheila sent me this easy recipe for the world's most dangerous cake.
5 minute Chocolate Mug Cake
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional) - but recommended ;)
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 and vanilla extract, and mix again
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 mins 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 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!
Now off you go and console yourself about this rotten weather...........and then have a nap......and then do some more quilting, because what else can a body do on a day like this.
