Temptation i can't stay away

I was trolling the net when I came across this; I found it so cute and sexy that I had to share. Now I have not tried this so I am leaving it up to you to tell me how it goes.

Chocolate Mug Cake for TWO

Prep time + cook time = 5 MINUTES extra 3 mins for newbies


4 tablespoons flour
5 tablespoons sugar (u can decrease # of tbs if adding choc. chips or ice-cream)
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
1 egg (lightly beaten)
3 tablespoons milk or water
3 tablespoons melted butter/oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips plus extra for sprinkling (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

You could make this in a bowl and then pour the batter into microwave-proof dishes/mugs or you can halve the ingredients into each mug (should fill half way in the mug)

*NOTE: When cooking the batter does rise, so keep an eye out.

Serves 2

1. Mix dry ingredients together in the mugs or bowl
2. Add the rest of the remaining ingredients. Mix until combined.
3. Microwave one mug at a time on medium-high for one minute and an extra 30secs if needed. (It should be cooked but moist and gooey in the middle.)
4. Get a fork or spoon and DIG IN :)
Eat on its own or add a scoop of ice-cream on top of the cake

If you want to be fancy you could:
-remove the cake from the mug, serve on a plate with a scoop of ice cream and decorate with pieces of your favourite fruits
-dust with icing sugar
-drizzle chocolate sauce and sprinkle crushed nuts
Use your imagination; you could add many goodies :)

p.s This is finger-licking good and super super easy, like making coffee :)

Both the mug cakes I made last night got demolished so quickly that I didn't get a chance to take a photo of it. I found a picture that looked almost identical to mine to show you, minus the ice cream I served with my cakes.

When I do try it out I am going to do a few improvements on it
But in the mean time enjoy I am way to excited t wait to share this one.
