Microwave Chocolate Cake

This is for when you have One of Those Days. You know the kind I’m talkin’ about. They’re the ones when you wish you could just crawl back into bed, or escape to a warm sunny beach in the Bahamas, or sit and watch a chick flick completely uninterrupted while eating something rich and chocolate-y!
Thanks to my dear friend Kris, I found that recipe!
When I’m having One of Those Days, the last thing I often feel like doing is baking a complicated dessert or sharing. With this you don’t have to do either.
All it takes is a few simple ingredients, a coffee mug and a microwave…
First get out one standard sized (11 oz or larger) microwave safe coffee mug.
4 Tbsp flour
4 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa
dash of salt
into the mug and whisk together with a spoon. You can even use the Tbsp, then you have fewer dishes to do! Bonus!!!

Then add
2 Tbsp oil
2 Tbsp cold water
splash of vanilla
and mix thoroughly. Be sure to scrape the sides and bottom well.
Then fold in
a small handful of chocolate chips
brownie mug 04
Microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes. Let sit for 1 minute in microwave.
brownie mug 05
Remove and let cool a bit before eating.

It is really hot and gooey (sort of reminds me of lava cake) and perfect with a cup of coffee or a glass of cold milk!
