Five Minutes To Danger Mountain

Danger Mountain Mug Cake
Adapted from Life in a Shoe

-1 coffee mug (microwave-safe)
-4 T. cake flour (plain, not self-rising)
-4 T. sugar
-2 T. cocoa
-1 egg
-3 T. milk
-3 T. oil
-Splash of vanilla
-3 T. chocolate chips, optional (optional?)

Add dry ingredients to the mug; mix well with a fork. Add egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in milk, oil, and vanilla, and mix well. Add chips, if using.

Put mug in the microwave, and cook for three minutes at 1,000 watts. (note: my little low-wattage microwave cooked it perfectly at 3 minutes. You might want to try less time with yours.) Cake will rise over the top of the mug — do not be alarmed. When finished, carefully remove mug from microwave and allow to cool a little. Tip onto a small plate prior to serving, if desired. Yields one generous serving or two “more virtuous” servings.

I found this recipe a few months ago online, but with a different name. Very tasty, but it's even better with a bit of salt, to bring out the flavors. 1/8 teaspoon or so does the trick.
