Try it Tuesday!: Instant chocolate cake in a mug!

i don't know about you, but dessert MATTERS.  

and a lot of times i don't plan ahead very well for my most important moment of the evening (food-wise).  

so when i found something i could make from basic ingredients i always have on hand.  let's just say STOKED.

Whisk 1/4 cup flour, 5 tablespoons sugar, 2 tablespoons cocoa powder, 1 egg, 3 tablespoons milk, 3 tablespoons vegetable oil and a dash of vanilla extract and salt in a large mug until smooth.

i read the part about mixing it in the actual mug after the fact...;)

but...my initial mug was too large...soo...

switched it into my most favorite mug (seriously, why not in the first place?)...

microwaved it for 2 minutes until it starting growing like mad...

BAM!  chocolate cake in a mug!

powdered sugar...

it's a big deal.  even justin liked it.

super moist!  not very chocolate-y so i'd maybe add more cocoa or even semi-sweet chunks.

Check out the Food Network's page for it.
