Craving Satisfied: Chocolate Cake In A Mug

I love chocolate. Anyone who knows me knows it.  A friend mentioned recently in a FaceBook post that she recently made a "Cake In A Mug".  I Googled it and found so many hits it was crazy!  I had a really strong craving for chocolate after dinner, fueled by an 80 year old chocoholic mother, so I whipped it up; cooked in a tall Starbucks mug!

Chocolate Cake In A Mug

It totally hit the spot.  Here's the recipe as modified by me. I like to add a little something so here is my take on it!

4 tablespoons cake flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa powder (Use GOOD cocoa powder)
1/2 tablespoon instant espresso
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg beaten
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
2 -3 drops vanilla 

In a small bowl, mix the flour, sugar, cocoa, tiny pinch baking powder and tiny pinch salt. (This can also be mixed directly into a large mug). Add egg and mix into dry mixture. Add oil and milk and mix well. Grease a tall, large mug, and pour in this mixture, scraping out with a spatula.

Place in microwave on High for 2 1/2 - 3 minutes.

Best slightly undercooked, so be careful. Microwave ovens vary - mine is mad powerful.  I cooked mine for 2:30.  Delicious topped with a scoop of frozen yogurt!
