Default 5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

Pictures at link

http://newdressaday.wordpress.com/


5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE

4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
A small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug (Microwave Safe)

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly before pouring in the milk and oil in. Keep mixing. Add the optional chocolate chips next (who makes that an option!) and vanilla extract, and mix again…

Put your mug in the micro wave and cook for three minutes at 1000 watts. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don’t be alarmed! Allow it to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
This is too easy!!

This is too easy!!

EAT ! (this can serve two if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).
Optional Sharing Method!

OSM!! (Optional Sharing Method!)

Why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world? Because we are all only 5 minutes away from warm, gooey, delicious chocolate cake any time, night or day.

Screw virtue - top it with fresh strawberries or your favourite pie filling that goes well with chocolate - cherry, raspberry; whatever turns your crank.

I just ran out of cooking oil this morning. I would have sworn I had another large container of it - argh!

Will have to wait until after my next shopping run to try this.

Sounds yummy...but at 1017 calories (with the optional choc chips) and 59 grams of fat, I think I'll resist the temptation on this one.

Half a bar of Trader Joe dark choc. (145 cal.) and I'm happy.

I am going to need to see the source or some data before I toss this one in the bin.

Look lower down.

But yes, I have sewn a garment, mended clothing and even crochet something.

Sugars, granulated .25 cup - 193.5 cal
Cocoa, dry powder, unsweetened 2 Tbs - 24.6 cal

Milk, 1/2% milkfat, with added vitamin A and vitamin D .2 cup - 20 cal
Oil, corn and canola 3 Tbs - 371.3 cal
Vanilla extract .5 tsp - 6 cal
Baking chocolate, Semisweet Chocolate Mini Baking Bits 3 Tbs - 217.1 cal

One once in a while certainly won't hurt. I like the odd chocolate fix but not enough to make an entire chocolate cake. Even that, I'd split in half - it's pretty heavy & while I still need a good layer of subcutaneous fat, I have to watch what I'm eating too.

I need to pick up a new 9v battery for my scale - I went to stand on it last week & the digital readout went nuts, then it died. I know I'm putting on some weight but I'd like to keep track of the rate of gain so I can adjust my diet accordingly.

I've been adding more fibre, trying to make better carb choices but I've got to increase my f&v intake. I've simply been lazy about it. In the evening, instead of snacking on higher calorie goodies, now tat my appetite & stomach capacity have returned to a 'normal' state, I may start snacking on steamed peas, corn niblets & such.

I bought someprunes, cut up dates, (yum!) & dried canteloupe yesterday at a bulk store. I was disappointed with the centeloupe - doesn't hold its flavour over the drying process. I'm going to experiment with different dried fruits & see what else I happen to like - some will no doubt be cheaper that way in winter.

One of these is wonky.


http://blogs.webmd.com/healthy-recip...-makeover.html

Making these changes made quite a difference in the nutritional content. Check this out:

* Calories went DOWN from 415 to 240
* Fat grams went DOWN from 25 to 8 grams
* Saturated fat went DOWN from 2.8 to .7 grams
* Cholesterol went DOWN from 113 to 2.5 milligrams
* Fiber went UP from 1.4 to 3 grams

It's wonky for sure.

I've double-checked all individual ingredient calorie values in CRON against other sources on the net.

Using that 'reduced' version recipe (even leaving out all the optional stuff) it still comes out to 600 calories.

O.K... here is a big part of the diff.

"Yield: Makes 2 servings"

You only get to eat half of it. Good luck with that.

Ok...I made this today, and shared it with my son. It was pretty good--won't replace cake from scratch in the oven, but good for a quick dessert. As to the number of servings, my almost 15 year old son (we call him the eating machine) was satisfied with half of a cake, and the other half was too much for me. I would say it's 3, maybe 4 servings.

DD is in the week before "that time of the month", is snarly and b*tchy, whined that she wanted "something chocolate".

I made her one of these. She is smiling and saying, "Thankyou,thankyou,thankyou,thankyou..."

I thank you.

And as for the calories,

PHFFFEEEEEEHHH!

Just don't eat it a lot.

Oh, Fuzzy Hubby says thanks, too. I think she was scaring him...
