pic of the day - world's most dangerous cake recipe

A friend of mine recently emailed me something known as the most dangerous cake recipe in the world. I thought I'd see if it works. It does, but I recommend using self-raising flour, even though the recipe doesn't say so. I didn't and my cake was the worse for it.

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 (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 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!
Let me know how yours turns out ;o)

I've actually made this and my hubby loves it! I don't even like chocolate, but I must say, it IS good!

And yes, I use self~rising flour.

Just the pic you use...your personal pic or one from the net?

@Wendy It's my own pic. I try to publish one pic every day that reflects something I've seen or done or somewhere I've been.
