Homemade Chocolate Cake in 4 minutes!

I have seen this recipe on several blogs in the last year and resisted trying it. I tend to shy away from anything too trendy, only to embrace it a year later when everyone else is almost tired of it. Case in point--I just started wearing leggings under long sweaters. True fashionistas are probably tiring of this trend, but I am just adopting it. Anywho, I finally came upon a bonafide reason to try out this recipe. Last night Ash made homemade brownies. I wanted a brown with my whole heart. After asking Ashley multiple times to bring me one from Peoria, it became clear she wasn't going to acquiesce. Time for chocolate cake in a 4 minutes!!! The recipe follows:

Microwave Mug Cake
4 tbsp. flour
4 tbsp. sugar

4 tbsp. cocoa
1 egg
3 tbsp. milk
3 tbsp. oil
3 tbsp. chocolate chips (optional, but hell, would I be making this concoction if
I HAD any chocolate chips? No).
Small splash vanilla

Measure flour, sugar, and cocoa in a large mug. Mix well. Add egg and mix well. Add milk and oil and mix well. Add chocolate chips and vanilla and mix well.
Microwave for 3 minutes. Take notice that your cake may creep up above the top of your mug, but shouldn't spill over.

Now if I just had some frosting for the top.....

That looks YUM, Mindi! I am gonna try it the next time a wave of chocolate craving hits me. BTW, I am soooo behind the trendy stuff too - I still haven't ever worn a legging under a long sweater. May be this winter if I feel bold enough ;)
