Why I Love This Recipe

To make more moist try:

These are the changes I made:

instead of the baking cocoa I used 1 square (melted) unsweetened chocolate

instead of the egg I used 1/4 cup of egg beater

instead of the oil I used 3 T unsweetened applesauce

instead of the chocolate chips I used Hershey Premier Flavored baking pieces (raspberry creme)

It was fabulous. It was moister and the raspberry flavor with the chocolate was to die for. I have some Caramel baking pieces that I will have to try one day also.

It was fun playing with the recipe I hope you like the changes.

You might want to change the cooking time to 2:30 to 2:45 min. If overcooked it will get rubbery.

Ingredients You'll Need

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.

Add 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. 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. and now the

most important step ... EAT! (or share, this can serve 2 if you want to feel

slightly more virtuous)

why is it 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 as

long as you have a kitchen.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

Im glad your son and his friends liked them. I have lots of baking spenda left from my holiday cooking. Im sugar free these days so Im going to try making them this week with splenda instead of the sugar. I think the flavor options will be endless as well. Using sf flavored DaVinci syurps

I made 4 of these the other night for my son and his friends. They loved it!!! Now they can make it themselves whenever they get the munchies (17 years old) They recommend garnishing with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream with chocolate sauce and nuts.
