Dangerous Mug Cake

Dangerous Mug Cake created by Lorrie in Montreal

And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world? Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night! *After reading the first few reviews, I realized that when I had originally made it, I had been using self rising flour! So, I've since updated the recipe and add the baking powder and salt that was missing... not surprisingly, it turned out much better! We always top ours with whipping cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Ready In:

ingredients

directions

  • You will also need: 1 coffee mug.
  • Spray inside of mug lightly with cooking spray.
  • 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 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 or you can eat it right out of the mug and a scoop of ice cream is a nice way to top this dessert off.
  • You can put all the dry ingredients into snack size zip lock bags and tuck them into a mug (along with this recipe) to give it as a gift. Just make sure that the cup is microwave safe and holds 1 1/2 cup.

    Ugh! Disgusting! I have never smelled something so bad in my life! I followed the exact directions and not even 1 minute in my microwave was filled with nasty exploded egg and smelled terrible!!! I'm never following directions like this again!

    Texture and flavor was a big let down. Not what I was craving at all. Dissatisfied.

    So here's the thing -- I beat my cake mix when adding the egg and milk (with a one-beater mixing tool)...and it FILLS TO THE TOP a 2-cup glass measuring cup when it is done. The texture is light and airy -- tho' I find that the chocolate chips like to stay together and do not always completely melt, so do not always add them. Very good quick cake. No, it's not like the one you make when you separate the eggs, beat the egg whites and fold them in -- but for a quick chocolate fix -- you can't beat it unless you live next to a bakery! Mahalo for the recipe Likkel.

    Not the best tasting cake I've ever had, but hey it only took about 10 minutes (I made two). Definitely good for the effort and time that was put into it, haha.

    This recipe is dangerous indeed. Though it's more of a brownie texture. I too received this by email, and it did not call for salt or baking powder, but it rose just fine. And I tend to forget the vanilla at the end, but it doesn't seem to change to change the over all taste that much. We ate it hot with vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup and sliced strawberries to dress it up a bit. And if you eat the whole thing in one silting, you won't desire chocolate for a week... LOL!
