Chocolate "cake-in-a-cup"
 This is an awesome way to spend time with your Mom or Dad! It only takes 10 minutes (at the most), and you probably already have all the ingredients you need. The best part is you end up with a delicious dessert to share!

1 coffee mug
1 tablespoon measuring spoon
mixing spoon
microwave oven

4 tablespoons flour (not self-rising)
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
pinch of salt
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil OR applesauce
3 tablespoons chocolate chips, white or semi-sweet



Put all the dry ingredients in the mug and mix well.

Add the egg and mix as best you can.

Add the milk and the oil and mix until nice and smooth.

Add the chocolate chips and mix again.

Place the mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes on high. Don't worry if the cake rises over the top of the mug, it's fine!

Remove from oven and let cool for a little.

Turn out onto a small plate.


For a little something extra, drizzle with some caramel sauce. Mmmm!
