Dangerous 5 Minute Chocolate Cake

14 09 2008

Okay, I realize that chocolate cake isn’t really a necessary tool to do professional embroidery or longarm quilting, but it does act as a creative agent so I think it is appropriate to pass along this recipe from a fellow quilter.



1 Coffee Mug

4 tablespoons flour (that’s plain flour, not self-rising)

4 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons baking cocoa

1 egg

3 tablespoons milk

3 tablespoons oil

3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional) some nuts


Small splash of vanilla

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,

and mix again. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3

minutes on high. 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.

(this can serve 2 if you want to share!)

Now, why is this the most dangerous chocolate cake? Because you are now only 5 minutes away from it any time day or night. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
