"Hot Chocolate" Mug Cake

Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

1 coffee mug
4 T. flour
4 T. Sugar
2 T. baking cocoa
1 egg (1 T. dry egg powder and 2 T. of water)
3 T. milk (1/2 T. Dry Powdered Milk + 3 T. Water)
3 T. oil (or applesauce)
3 T. chocolate chips
small splash of vanilla

Add dry ingredients to mug and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips and vanilla. Mix again. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts. The cake will rise over the top of the mug but don’t be alarmed! Allow to cool a little.

I got this idea from the everyday food storage website. What a cute idea! To make it look like hot chocolate for a gift, use whip cream and crushed candy canes on top with a chocolate luxury cream filled wafer for the "straw." CUTE!
