Most Dangerous Cake Ever!

OK this is way beyond musings, and studio, and so forth. But then again it does involve chocolate and , really, doesn’t chocolate have an awful lot to do with creativity? Well it does for me at times.

My friend Lyn recently emailed me this recipe. I thought no way, no how. I said Lyn, “is this for real?” She didn’t know. So out of the Lindt, Sees, Cadbury from Christmas, in a moment of absolute desperation, I made it and believe it or not, it works. This is a little like mud cake crossed with a brownie, and coupled with a bit of French vanilla ice cream it is a little bit of heaven.
So with no further ado……


4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
a small splash of vanilla extract
1 large 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 extract, and mix again.

Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts (high).
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.
EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).

And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world?

Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!

In moments of chocolate desperation, I can attest that this is indeed 5 minutes to bliss.

Enjoy, LeAnn
