'Tis the Season

to be jolly! We gathered around the dinner table last night and made Chocolate Mug Cakes! We each had our own large mug, added the required ingredients, stirred, and mixed, and wondered about the results. To our surprise, we ended up with a quick (3 minutes in the microwave) chocolate mug cake!
Chocolate Mug Cake
In a coffee mug, combine:
4 Tbsp. flour, 4 Tbsp. sugar, and 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
In a mixing bowl, beat 1 egg (well beaten), 3 Tbsp. oil, 3 Tbsp. milk, 3 Tbsp. mini chocolate chips, and 1/8 tsp. vanilla
Pour liquid ingredients into coffee mug and stir together until combined.
Microwave on high for 3 minutes. The cake will rise up over the top of the mug, that's okay. Cool a minute and enjoy directly from the mug or remove from mug to plate and enjoy warm cake with ice cream. Yum! 'Tis the Season!
