Introduction: 5-Minute Chocolate Chip Mug Cake

About: Check out my etsy shop too! etsy.com/shop/scoochmaroo

Based on the popularity of the 5-Minute Chocolate Cake, I decided to experiment with a recipe for a 5-Minute Chocolate Chip Cake!  You can swap the chocolate chips for any other flavor, or leave them out entirely and make a spice cake from it instead.  Either way, this is a great base for your 5-Minute Cake home experiments.

As I explain in the 5-Minute Chocolate Cake recipe, I did a lot of experimenting to determine the proper amount of egg to use.  This recipe uses slightly less sugar and oil in an attempt to lighten it up a bit.  I still prefer the chocolate variety, but this one isn't bad when you've only got a few minutes and really need some cake!  

Tools:

Mug
Digital Scale
Microwave

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons beaten egg
3 tablespoons sugar
5 tablespoons flour
1/8 teaspoon of baking powder 
pinch salt
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons milk
Splash vanilla
3 tablespoons chocolate chips or any spices/flavorings to taste


Directions:

Mix ingredients very well in your mug.  

Microwave between 90 seconds and 4 minutes, depending on the power of your microwave. It's ok to check in on it from time to time and pop it back in for more time. Mine took 3 full minutes, crested over the top of the mug, and then sunk again.

Serve with ice cream!

The flavor was amazing, and the top half was light and fluffy. But after I got to the middle of the mug, the cake gained a rough and stiff texture. What should I do?

I made it!!!!
However, I overcooked it and it turned into something with the consistency of briscuit. (How do you spell that?) It was still very delicious. Maybe I'm on to something here..........

Can you tell me the volume of your mug? That would be a help when trying to duplicate your results. Thanks!

Ok, this I have to try! I'm not sure I've seen a 'baking' recipe with so little of key ingredients like flour and baking powder actually work--but I'm excited to find out!
