Chocolate Mug Cake

I received this recipe from my dear friend, Suzanne, who lives in northern Vermont. Suzanne lives on a farm with llamas, chickens, sheep, goats, and lots of stray cats and dogs. She is an animal lover to the extreme and sometimes she can be quite unorthodox as you can see from the recipe below. I haven’t tried it yet, but since I haven’t added a recipe since my malasadas a few weeks ago, I thought it would be nice to share an untested recipe with you. It looks pretty quick. 

Honestly? Any baked item that doesn’t contain salt tastes rather bland to me, so I’d add some salt here. One quarter teaspoon maybe? 

I know, it doesn’t look that appetizing, does it? (It’s okay, Suzanne doesn’t read my blog.) It’s a slow day for recipes. Sorry. Try it and let me know how it is!


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. 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).

    This looks like the perfect recipe for my teenagers to try. Maybe they can do it sometime this week. We’ll let you know how it turns out.

    A Guinea Pig! Yay! What a trooper. Can’t wait to hear how it is
