I've seen a lot of people talking about their use of chocolate as a reward, distraction, or alternative. What's better than chocolate? Chocolate cake! What's better than chocolate cake? Chocolate cake made in a mug in 3 minutes!


4 Tbsp flour
4 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp cocoa
1 egg
3 Tbsp milk
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
3 Tbsp chocolate chips (optional)
dash of vanilla extract
Large microwave-safe coffee mug

Add dry ingredients to mug, mix. Add egg, mix. Add milk and oil, mix. Add chocolate chips and vanilla, mix. Microwave 3 minutes (2:30-2:45 for fudgy), cool slightly, tip onto plate or eat straight from the mug.

I highly recommend using chocolate chips, even though they're supposedly optional. Also, this says it should be made in a LARGE mug. And it means it. It expands a whole lot.

Happy cake eating and good luck to everyone with continued sobriety!
