Chocolate Quick Fix

I found this recipe in some magazine recently, tried it, and was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. It makes one large serving of gooey chocolate cake.

In a coffee mug (or small microwave-safe bowl)

mix 2 Tablespoons each of:

  • All Purpose flour
  • cocoa powder
  • milk (I used skim, since that is what I had)
  • vegetable oil
  • chocolate chips
Add and mix thoroughly:
  • 3 Tablespoons of sugar or Splenda
  • 1 beaten egg
  • splash of vanilla extract
Microwave on high for 2 minutes.

Tip out onto plate to serve, if desired -- or eat out of the mug.

Note: It rises far above the top of the cup as it cooks and sinks as soon as the microwave goes off.
