A Little Chocolate for the Ladies

When I did my student teaching, God used it as an excuse to introduce me to my fairy godmother. The very special woman I student taught with has become one of my closest friends, mentors, and my "fairy godmother". My children sleep under handmade quilts made by her, and I have more quilts in my home because she taught me the art. In short, I love her dearly.

A couple of weeks ago when I was feeling down, she sent me an email reminding me that sometimes we just need a little chocolate in our lives. So, she sent me this recipe. It is a YUMMY single serving 2 seconds to make chocolate cake. Give it a try the next time you need a chocolate fix.

MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE

1 Coffee Mug

4 tablespoons flour (plain flour, not self-rising)
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
Small splash of vanilla

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well . Add the egg
and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla, and mix
again.

Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at
1000 watts. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be
alarmed!

Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if
desired.

EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to share!)

Yum! I am definitely going to try this. I wonder if you could give this as a gift with the dry ingredients in the mug. Just a thought.
