A cake in a cup; CUPCAKE

I was having a major cupcake craving at 11 pm yesterday. I needed an instant sweet gratification, and resorted to making myself a chocolate cake in 5 minutes. Yes, 5 minutes! the microwave....Instant!

I was so busy indulging in the chocolaty goodness I forgot to take a picture. I found one that looked pretty similar to what I made. The only difference, I didn't add any fruit. If I have to sin, might as well go the whole jingbang! Oh, and before you scold me for eating 5000 calories after 7 pm.... I worked out for 2 hrs today! :D

2 tbsp baking cocoa
4 tbsp All-Purpose Flour
1 Egg
3 tbsp Oil
3 tbsp Sugar
3 tbsp Milk
½ tsp Vanilla Extract
1 scoop Vanilla Ice Cream *optional

Cake in a cup:

In a large microwavable coffee cup/mug, add all the dry ingredients into it – the flour, the cocoa and the sugar

To this add mixture add the egg and whisk completely; keep checking for lumps

Now, add in the milk, oil, and the vanilla extract and mix it thoroughly

Place this cup in the microwave and bake for 3 minutes

When the cake rises to the top, remove the cup and allow to cool a little

Dig in straight or tip onto plate and enjoy. If you want, you can add fresh fruit, or some whipped cream, a dollop of vanilla ice cream or some chocolate syrup
