3 Minute Chocolate Cake

I found this cake online...I cannot remember where I found it, but it sounded so odd, I thought I would try it. One day Scott ran to the store to pick me up like "1" item so it was a quick trip. By the time he got back I had this little cake sitting out for him. He was dumbfounded. He couldn't believe I whipped this up while he was around the corner. I gotta be honest...I'm not a choclate cake fan which is weird because I'm a brownie fanatic...go figure. So of course, I didn't want to eat it. But Scott devoured it and said it was good. I didn't have anything to top it with so I grabbed some semi-sweet and regular milk chocolate chips and melted them in the microwave real quick and drizzled it over the top. This is the funniest little cake. First off, you make it in a coffe mug, secondly, it's the easiest recipe you'll ever make and thirdly, it's pretty ugly when you pull it out but if you dress it up a little, you could make it into a pretty little fancy piece of art. And to get your chocolate fix after only 3 doesn't get better than that. Try it out and tell me what you think.

Three Minute Microwave Chocolate Cake

4 tbsp All-Purpose Flour
4 tbsp Sugar
2 tbsp Cocoa
1 Egg
3 tbsp Milk
3 tbsp Oil
1 Mug

Mix flour, sugar and cocoa in a mug. Spoon in 1 egg. Add the milk and oil and mix well.Microwave on high for 3 minutes. It'll begin to rise and then settle down in the mug. Remove the cake from the mug onto a plate and enjoy!

Yours is really pretty. I only cooked mine for 3 minutes as well. I think NuKiwi called it the 5 minute cake recipe because it takes 2 minutes to put together, 3 to cook it. I love what you did with the chocolate chips.

Very I am going to make it for a blog though...
