The most dangerous cake recipe!
I got this recipe from my former boss. I’ve made it several times since with my kids for a midnight snack while giggling over boys and nail polish colors. I’ve served it on occasion while entertaining… making the cake was the main event. I must say it is good with some coffee ice cream with a drizzle of Bailey’s or with some old-fashioned vanilla ice cream and a dallop of whipped cream. You can have fun with it, use your imagination!
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons real cocoa – not hot chocolate mix
1 egg 3 tablespoons half & half – or milk
3 tablespoons butter – melted
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
a small splash of vanilla extract
You’ll need a large coffee mug.
Add dry ingredients in the coffee mug and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the half & half and melted-butter, mix well.
Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, mix again. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 5 minutes at 1000 watts (high). 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).
“A recipe everyone should know!”
And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world? Because now, we’re only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time. Enjoy!

What a great recipe. I’m definitely going to try this.
OMG! Almost fainted. 🙂
Wait till you try it, then faint. It’s really yummy.
I suppose I should put a clause at the bottom “May cause you to faint, must have pillows around…”
DUN Dun Dun,,,,5 minute warning to chocolate.. mmmmm
Mm, this looks amazing! Only problem: I don’t own a microwave. Would it be possible to bake in the oven instead?
I’m sure it’s possible with a few changes.
Just made the cake. It’s bloody awesome.
