Minute chocolate cake

Last night Phillip complained that I never make him brownies.  It's not that I don't love him, it's that whatever he didn't finish, I would (I'm such a glutton!).  My dear brother sent me this recipe and to my suprise it actually worked!

1 Coffee Mug
4 tablespoons flour(that's plain flour, not self-rising)
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
Small splash of vanilla

Add dry 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 (if using) and vanilla, and mix again.

Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!

Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.

EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to share!)

I used a wide mug so it wouldn't spill all over the microwave but I didn't need to worry.  The texture is a bit off and if I had white flour it would have tasted better but the results were great!  I think I'll try playing around with the recipe some more ...

** update**  I didn't share mine with Phillip, I'll make him his own!
