A Little Something Good for Friday

For when you want “something” but don’t want to make, bake, or buy something big. This is a one-shot deal, and it’s enough for 2 to share if they want. I’ve made it several times and it gets better each time. Enjoy!!

1 Coffee Mug (I use a larger “soup-type” mug)

4 tblsp plain flour (not self-rising)

4 tblsp sugar

2 tblsp baking cocoa

1 egg

3 tblsp milk

3 tblsp oil

3 tblsp chocolate chips (optional–not really!)

Small splash of vanilla

Add dry ingredients to mug and mix well.

Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Make sure you get ALL the dry stuff incorporated.

Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.

Add the choc chips and vanilla and mix again.

Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts. Check the back of your micro to determine the wattage. If less, you will need to adjust cooking time.

The cake will rise over the top of the mug but do not be alarmed. This is really COOL!

Allow to cool a little and tip out onto a plate if desired. EAT!

Kids love to make this! And it’s really not all that messy.
