5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake - National Choco Cake Day fun

In honor of my chocolate addiction, and today being National Chocolate Cake Day, here is what I'm making for my muscle man and kids tonight:

5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 large coffee mug (plenty of those around here!)

Add dry ingredients to mug.  Mix well.  Add egg and mix well.  Pour in milk and oil.  Mix well.  Stir in chocolate chips and vanilla.  Place mug in microwave and cook for three minutes.  Cake will rise a little over the top of the mug.  Allow to cool (I make it about 30 seconds!) and enjoy!  Sometimes I dump it on a plate and add a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on top!  It is dangerous how fast you can make this cake...which explains why we make it so frequently!

"Let's face it, a nice creamy chocolate cake does a lot for a lot of people;
it does for me."
(Audrey Hepburn)
