PostHeaderIcon Just Desserts: Coffee-Cup Chocolate Cake

The portion size on this is enough for 2 -- but why share?!

  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil (or butter, melted)
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large microwave-safe coffee mug

Add dry ingredients to the coffee mug and mix well with a fork. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Add milk and oil and continue to mix well. Fold in the chocolate chips and vanilla extract beat until well mixed.

Microwave for about for 3 minutes on high (assuming a 1000 watt oven -- lower the time if your oven is higher wattage.)

The cake will rise like a souffle. Carefully remove from the microwave (use a pot-holder!) and let cool for few minutes before serving.

Works well directly from the coffee cup or tip it out onto a plate and serve with a scoop of ice cream.
