Got 5 min to spare? Make a CAKE!!!

Yes that's right!! Now there is NO excuse to say that you don't have time to make a cake =p

Was at my cousin's new house and wanted to bake something for the first time in the kitchen! but we also had limited ingredients and time. So we were flipping through this collection of recipes made by her work place where everyone puts in their best and well tested recipes and found a recipe for 5 Minute Chocolate MUG Cake. It claimed to only take 5 minutes! :O Yes 5 minutes!!!!!

Amazingly... it worked a treat!!! The good thing about it is that it only uses 1 mug and 1 spoon (less washing) and you can get your chocolate fix in 5 minutes!! So give it a go~~ If you have guests coming over unexpectantly.. this is PERFECT! You just need a mug and microwave :)

5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake
Recipe adapted from Elizabeth ________ >< forgot who! sorry!

4 tbsp self-raising flour (if you only have plain flour, add 1/2 tsp bicarb soda/baking powder)
4 tbsp caster sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 egg
3 tbsp milk
3 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
3 tbsp chocolate chips (optional.. we didn't have any but it would have been delicious with them!)

1. Add dry ingredients to mug and mix well. 
2. Add egg and mix well. Add milk and oil and mix to combine. Add vanilla and choc chips and mix.
Looks like hot chocolate XD
3. Place mug in microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts (high). The cake will rise over the top of the mug but DO NOT BE ALARMED
Cooking in a microwave~

Looks like souffle! haha
4. Allow to cool in mug a little, and tip onto a plate if desired (or just eat straight out of the mug!)
TA DA!!! =D =D

Tastes great with a spoonful of vanilla icecream =)
Looks like normal chocolate sponge cake! Very light and fluffy ^^
Mmmm icecream~~

Think about all the variations you could do!! Green tea... vanilla... blueberry... orange! the list is endless ^^ So go on! by the time you read this post you could have made this cake XD
