5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake  
'cause I know y'all need to have hot chocolate cake on demand too... ;)

4 tablespoons cake flour (that’s plain flour, not self-raising)
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips(optional)
a small splash of vanilla
1 coffee mug

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.

A little instant gratification is good for the soul, hmmm? I'm thinking this can be modified to other types of cake, but chocolate is, of course, the best. I'm planning on some with my favorite local dark chocolate/cherry/chili bar instead of boring old chips. And french vanilla ice cream.

This might motivate me to drag one of the nice, hand thrown, ceramic mugs out of exile from the closet...

I knew you would appreciate both the cake and my evil intentions. I've already given myself the Evil Bitch of the Week double platinum star. Feel free to send others over to the party - name calling is appropriate ;)

That... is tested? Damned cool!

My darling wife informs me of a variant involving cake mix and soda, as in "cola for a chocolate cake, something fruity or 7-Up like for a white cake." I'm less tempted to try that one than I am by the one you've posted.
