quick fix

Have you ever just had to have some chocolate and couldn't find any in the house? You look in the obvious (public) places, pantry, cookie jar, end table... the (hiding) places - bottom of purse, car console, hidden in the back of the fridge... and it is nowhere to be found!

But not to worry! I bet you will have all the ingredients for this delicious

"5 minute Chocolate Cake in a Mug"

Just get out one of those souvenir mugs like this one given out every Christmas by the now defunct Gilmer County Bank... hey, a collector's item!

Mix up the following ingredients:

4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug (MicroSafe)

Place mug into the microwave and cook for 3 minutes. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, fun to watch, but not to worry!

Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired. Enjoy! Serves 1 or 2, depending on how big your craving is!
