Check this out. My friend Callie emailed this to me earlier today. She’s from Australia by the way. You never knew I was so sophisticated and cultured. Knowing someone from another country makes you cultured right? At the bottom of the email it said you must try it straight away. Ya’ll know we don’t say stuff like “straight away” here in Oklahoma. Anyway back to the cake I went and tried it, straight away I did. It was good. Not like a homemade cake that you worked on for hours but better than any store bought goodie you may purchase. Just last night Hubs wanted dessert and since I didn’t have one prepared he ran over to Braums and got a package of those brownies they sell. If I would have had this three minute recipe I could have whipped it up. Much easier on the budget also. Now I didn’t have any chocolate chips but I would imagine it is much better with the chips. This makes plenty for two people or one non calorie counting woman and two sweet babies. That would be me. Go ahead and say it. What a hog! Ps. Please do not comment on my peacock plate atop a rooster place mat. I’m no Martha Stewart folks!

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.


  1. Ok I have tried it and it was bland to me, I tried it before you posted this.... Personally,I needed more of a gooey chocolate taste, but super super easy!!

  2. Ok, I tried this last week. Ashlee and I made it together and it was wonderful. She loved being able to help and having her own dessert. While warm I added some ice cream and hot fudge and it hit the spot. Even my hubby was amazed at how good it was because he isn't a sweet eater!
