Stress Relief (compliments of Erika at Cutters Creek)


4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
(optional: 1 pinch of salt balances flavors)
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil or melted butter
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
a small splash of vanilla extract
1 coffee mug
Put dry ingredients in mug, 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 essence, and mix again.
(You can also do all the above in a bowl and then pour it in your mug)
Microwave for 3 minutes at 1000 watts. 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.


Note: 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!


  1. YUMMY!

    So I guess it wouldn't stick to the mug?

  2. I've not tried it YET but when I do, I'll probably spray PAM on the inside of the cup and probably even use a microwave bowl just to be on the safe side. If you try it be sure to let us know what you think. ~Linda
