fast food: 5 minute mug of chocolate cake

We mostly try to do the slow food thing around here, but there are times when fast works really well. Like these 5 minute mugs of chocolate cake. What could be better?

Here's the recipe:

4 T all purpose flour
4 T sugar
2 T cocoa
1 egg
3 T milk
3 T oil
3 T chocolate chips 
a small splash of vanilla extract
1 large, microwave-safe mug
Add the first three ingredients to mug and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (optional) and vanilla extract. Mix again. 
Place your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts. The cake will rise over the top of the mug. Cool the cake a little bit, then tip it out onto a plate. Share with a friend!

If you're feeling really adventurous, top with whipped cream or ice cream.

So easy, and so satisfying, and so fast. Yum!
