What you need:
1 coffee mug (must be microwave safe)
4 tablespoons flour (that's plain flour, not self-rising)
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional) some nuts (optional)
Small splash of vanilla

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, nuts (if using), and vanilla, and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for three (3) minutes on 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 share!)

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!

Oh, my. Not only is it dangerous for that reason alone, but also, this may just be the thing that convinces me I actually ought to get a microwave!

Double jeopardy right there, Rentman, LOL!

In any case, going to save this while I think about adopting a microwave... ;-) Thanks!

I wonder if you could get away with powdered egg and just add some water to the milk. I'm thinking this would be great to mix up the dry ingredients and make up a bunch of zippered baggies for my son away at school. He could add milk, water, and I'll send a container of oil and a Tbsp. Great school snack that is warm. Okay, how could we change it to gingerbread, spice cake or cornbread? Any ideas?

Hey, how come no baking powder or soda?

Thanks for posting, rentman, but I think this was posted quite a while ago in the Recipes forum.

It's hard to keep a good recipe down - they keep popping back up.

Everyone I shared this with likes it.

Oooo-- sounds dangerous indeed! Thanks for posting it! I'll give it a try for DH after lunch today! Maybe I'll use a medium-sized ramekin to prevent spill-over, and then he (who am I kidding, not just "he", we) can eat out of that.

If you search through Dave's you'll find the other recipe and I believe it includes a small amount of baking soda and baking powder. This cake was very tough and dense without the addition of these two ingredients. This is just my personal opinion, however.

I cooked this the other night and we both loved it. It had almost a brownie texture but so much the better. It was enough for DH and I to both have a warm piece with Cool Whip and then he snacked on it for 4 days. Thanks for posting is super!
