Boom Chocolata

I was asleep when this recipe made the rounds a few years back. But that’s okay, because now I have the dope, and my life has changed. Instant chocolate cake, a further incarnation of the EZ Bake light bulb version. Here it is.

Might not look this pretty, but hey.


Combine 1 egg, 3 T milk, 3 T neutral oil in a coffee mug, mix well.

Add 3 T flour, 4 T sugar, 2 T cocoa powder, mix thoroughly.

Add 3 T chocolate chips and a splash vanilla, mix again.

Put your mug in the microwave on high for 2 minutes. The cake will rise out of the mug; what a fine sight.

Allow to cool if you must and tip it onto a plate if you feel like it. Otherwise just dig in with a big ol’ spoon.  A dollop of vanilla ice cream wouldn’t be bad either.

P.S. You don’t have to share.
