Yep, I did it. I tried the recipe that was floating around on Etsy. How could I not? I love chocolate cake, but it's not one of those things that I can bake on the spur of the moment. Even a cake snob like me found it to be surprisingly good. Not the kind of thing that I'd eat regularly; just look at the ingredients to see why, but for those late night, gotta have something sweet, it's a keeper.
Give it a try:
4 tablespoons all purpose flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
You can add ingredients, or so I've read. Next time, I may throw in some nut. Or chocolate chips. Or both.
Mix it all up in the mug. Pop in the microwave for 3 minutes. At this point, I let it sit in the microwave for 2 minutes while it settled back down. It rises real high; about 1 inch above the rim of the mug. It's now ready to eat ~ straight from the mug or slid out onto a plate.Until next time.....
