An orphan finds a happy home

Last week was reveal day for the group (C) that I belong to with the Secret Recipe Club.  I was lucky enough to be able to make paratha’s for it (yumm) and spent some fun time visiting a number of blogs.  Every  so often though we have a blog that is orphaned.  Due to whatever reason the person that had been assigned that blog doesn’t post a recipe.  I don’t know why, it’s none of my business but today I’m going to highlight an orphan.  I know this wasn’t a great experience for her but my family reaped the benefits of it last week and I now have a new favourite (and almost instant) recipe from dailydish.
Like Deanna’s family, mine has gotten used to desserts almost every night.  I know, I know, it’s my fault and I spoiled them but…it is what it is.
How about cake in three minutes with ingredients that you will surely have in the house?

Mug in a Microwave: Easy Chocolate Cake

What you need:
•4 Tbs. cake flour (for the record, we have used all purpose flour as a substitution and it works, however – the cake flour definitely makes it softer and more moist)
•4 Tbs. sugar
•2 Tbs. cocoa
•1 Egg
•3 Tbs. milk
•3 Tbs. oil
•1 lg. coffee mug

•Topping of choice: homemade whipped cream, caramel sauce, fresh strawberries, cinnamon, powdered sugar, etc. (optional)

Really easy directions. Grease the inside of the mug, just like you would grease a cake pan. You don’t have to do this, and not every recipe tells you to do this, but we found that if we grease the inside of the mug, it slides out easier and looks prettier. If you don’t care how it looks, skip that part.

Toss the flour, the sugar and the cocoa into the mug.

Add the milk, oil and egg.

Microwave on high for 3 minutes!
