And just for fun, here's a recipe for "5-minute chocolate cake in a cup":
In a large coffee mug stir together 4 T flour, 4 T sugar, and 2 T. cocoa. Add 1 egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in 3 T milk and 2 T oil and mix well. Add a small splash of vanilla extract, and if desired, add 3 T chocolate chips. Mix again. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at high. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't worry, it shouldn't make a mess :) Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired. You may decide to share this with someone if you're feeling generous!
