5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake


Today I got this recipe in an email. I had bought some cute little mugs a few weeks back for small Christmas work gifts (not seen in this picture), and I was trying to decide what to fill them with to make them fun. I tried this recipe out tonight thinking it would be fun if it was good. I'm not sure what I think. It could be very cute, but the cake was a little dense, and bland. I added some powdered sugar, and that was better, and I'm thinking I might try topping them off with icing if I do decide to bake these in the mug. They also slip out of the mug really easily if you do decide to make these, and the recipe said not to worry if they overflow and puff up over the cup. I'm still deciding, and trying to work with the recipe and idea before it's time to put the gifts together.
Recipe:
Mix 4 T flour, 4 T sugar, 2 T cocoa
Stir in one egg
Add in 3 T milk, 3 T oil, 3 T Chocolate Chips (optional), and a small splash of vanilla in a mug, mix well.
Put it in the microwave for 3 minutes.
