"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

(The 5-Minute Chocolate Mug Cake, the most dangerous cake recipe in the world!)

4 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
4 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. baking cocoa

1 egg

3 Tbsp. milk
3 Tbsp. cooking oil

3 Tbsp. chocolate chips (optional)
a small splash of vanilla extract
1 coffee mug

Put dry ingredients in a small bowl and mix well.

Add the egg and mix thoroughly.

Pour in milk and oil and mix well.

Add chocolate chips and vanilla extract, and mix again. Pour into a lightly greased mug.

Microwave at 1000 watts for 3 minutes.

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. This can serve two if you are willing to share.

The reason it is dangerous is because we are only five minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!
