I won’t claim this is one of my original recipes, but it’s certainly original. Don’t curse me for giving you a chocolate outlet this simple and quick.
4 Tablespoons flour
4 Tablespoons sugar
2 Tablespoons cocoa powder, preferable Dutch-processed
3 Tablespoons milk
3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
Purchased chocolate syrup (optional)
1 Teaspoon mini chocolate chips (optional)
1 Large mug
Stir flour, sugar and cocoa powder in the mug:
Add egg to the dry mixture, stirring to combine:
Pour in milk and oil, and mix well (add chocolate chips if using):
Place mug in microwave and ‘bake’ for 3 minutes on high (cake will rise above the rim of the mug):
Flip the contents of the mug onto a plate (add chocolate syrup if using) and enjoy!
