My mom emailed me this recipe a few days ago and I scheduled making them for today as Football treats. LOL I read on Sandra's blog that she made them today too. So I guess that the email is really making the rounds since Sandra and I live on opposite ends of the country! The email called them Dangerous Chocolate Cake in a MUG, I call them SIN IN A CUP.

4 tablespoons cake flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
small splash of vanilla
3 tablespoons chocolate chips*

In a large coffee mug add the dry ingredients and mix well with a fork.
Add the egg and mix throughly.
Add the milk, oil and vanilla and mix again.
Add the chocolate chips.
Microwave for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.
Cake will rise above mug - don't worry.
Allow it to cool a bit before eating.

*hubby requested peanut butter chips and loved it. I like mine a little moister than this recipe so I drizzled caramel sauce over it before eating. I also think next time I will add a tablespoon of crushed walnuts to each cup.

Tamy, these are great. When I made them, I took them out of the mugs and split them, filled them with cream and topped them with cream. I wish I had loads of mugs to make a bunch.

Fun food. Thanks for posting.

I'm wondering if this happens to everyone, or if I'm doing something wrong...
My chocolate chips all sink to the bottom, and then melt together into a pool of melted chocolate-ness on the bottom. I would have thought they'd have been placed throughout like they do in my death by chocolate cake...

I find these work best in a 'heavy' weight mug. I've never had a problem with the chocolate chips though.
