Oh my gosh - I haven't had as much fun as this since I blew up marshmallows in a microwave last year with a 12 year old!
I got this in an email - and tossed it - and then went right back to my trash and rescued it.
I have now made it three times, and it isn't bad at all. You could even get away with it at your next dinner party, especially if you make some whipped cream on the side. Can you see it now - a prep line of beautifully dressed adults stirring their cake batter in mugs and microwaving it? What a hoot!
Care package for college students, or funny Christmas package with a cool mug and all the ingredients ( except the milk and egg, of course) - I'm sure you'll think of lots of ideas.
Take a mug or large microwavable cup.
4 T. flour
4 T. sugar
2 T. good, unsweetened cocoa powder
Mix dry ingredients well.
3 T. milk
2 T. vegetable oil
3 T. semi-sweet chocolate chips ( or broken up good chocolate)
1/2 t. vanilla
Mix really, really well in cup. Microwave for 3 minutes on high. Remove and enjoy!
