Bits and Pieces: A Dangerous Chocolate Cake

I received an email that I am pasting here for you. Before you read it let me tell you my experience with it. I received it, like I said, I read and re-read it. I sent it on. Hey, how about making it I said to myself. Okay, so I printed the recipe and went down to make it. I had all the ingredients except my flour was self- rising and the recipe said, no self-rising flour. So what. I don’t follow anything in total. Most often, Usually, Probably.

I did exactly what was prescribed in the recipe and it turned out majestic. Really. The cake puffed up way over the rim of the cup. It stayed there like a mountain. I dusted it with powdered sugar, I was thrilled with the experience and wanted to pass along to you the possibility of joy in accomplishment and the fun of following through. Here you go: Let me know how you do with this project. Do it now. Why wait. It is really awesome.

2 tablespoons baking cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
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 (if using) and vanilla, and mix again.

Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
