Empty Nester's Chocolate Cake

With it being just Regena and I here at the house, we really don’t need a big cake. Here is a recipe Regena received from a ladies list. I renamed it 'Empty Nester’s Chocolate Cake'.


1 Coffee Mug

4 TBSP Flour

4 TBSP Sugar

2 TBSP Baking Cocoa (or less cocoa)

Pinch Salt

1/8 tsp. Baking Powder

1 Egg

3 TBSP Milk

3 TBSP Oil

Small splash vanilla

Optional: 3 TBSP Choc. Chips or nuts

Mix dry ingredients in mug. Mix liquid ingredients in small
measuring cup 1st, then mix in mug with dry mixture, adding
choc. chips and/or nuts last. I didn’t grease the mug.

Put in microwave on high for 3 minutes. Mixture will
rise, but won’t spill usually. Allow to cool a bit. I slid
a knife around edges, then turn over onto a plate. It
can serve 2. Most dangerous chocolate cake recipe!—
5 minutes away for those needing a chocolate fix!!

I received that recipe a couple of months ago and didn't get an opportunity to try it. But I passed it on -- and my one friend that did try it... Well, she couldn't even give it away to her dogs.

Please -- those are your own photos? If so, I'll try it myself.
