Uh Oh, I’m in Trouble

>Attention: If you do not have any self control when it comes to chocolate then stop. Stop right there. Don’t read on, this is dangerous.

What’s so dangerous about that coffee mug? Just a pretty blue coffee mug.

Oh yeah, is that all it is? How about now?

Oh, big deal coffee and little bite of cake. What’s so dangerous about that?

What’s so dangerous you ask? Chocolate brownie cake in a mug in less than 5 minutes. That’s what.

Sometimes I just crave chocolate. But I don’t always have the time to bake an entire cake or batch of brownies. Not to mention the dishes, oh the dishes. It’s times like that, that this recipe is going to be dangerous. It’s not going to replace the recipe you use for a party or a birthday cake, but when you’re watching a movie and can’t shake a chocolate craving, this’ll do it.

Coffee Mug Brownie Cake

4 Tbsp all-purpose flour
3 Tbsp sugar (if you like things sweeter you can increase this to 4)
2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
Dash of salt
2 Tbsp vegetable oil (I haven’t tried it with applesauce but I think it would work and cut out the fat)
2 Tbsp milk (or water, but I’ve tried both and like the texture better with milk)
Optional 1 tbsp chocolate chips

In a coffee mug stir together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder and a dash of salt. If you’re using chocolate chips, add them now. Add the vegetable oil and milk and stir well with a fork. Make sure to break up all the clumps. Microwave for 1 minute. It should still look a little moist on top.

Drizzle with a little chocolate syrup if you like or just take a seat on the kitchen floor and eat it with the same fork you mixed it with…. Not that I’ve ever done that.
