This recipe was sent to me by one of my relatives and it just tempted me so much especially becaue it was just a 3 minutes dessert!!!A 3 minute cake!!Can you imagine? In the beginning I had a doubt if it would come out good mainly I have never made a cake that contains plain flour and has no baking powder or baking soda in it. But since the dessert had small amount of ingredients, I just went ahead and tried the next moment I got this recipe and it was so yummy. Guys, I couldnt just believe it. I forwarded the recipe to all my friends. And now Im sharing with this recipe with my readers here. And what most tempted me was the quote that was written at the end of the mail- " And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world? Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night! Let me know who got tempted like me, went ahead and made it....This is an ideal sweet to serve to guests who come home with late notice, or even as snack!

4 tablespoons plain flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 medium egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional) (I used Chocolate cut into chunks)
A small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug (MicroSafe)

1. Rub cold butter inside the Mug completely to prevent the cake from sticking to the mug. Add dry ingredients to a dish, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
2. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again. Pour it in the mug prepared earlier.
3. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts. (Since my Microwave was 700W, I cooked it for 4 minutes).
4. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed! (It really did rise about 3 inches on top of the mug, And I though it would spill all over the microwave, but it dint, So go ahead,Dont be alarmed ).
5.Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired. Serve with vanilla ice cream, whip cream, toffee sauce, caramel or simply icing sugar.
6. I used icing sugar for garnishing. For that, use 3 tbs icing sugar mixed with few drops of water/milk to make a paste of dropping consistency. Drizzle it all over. Serve warm.
Isn't that So simple?
Update: One of my friends tried this cake and she told me it wasn't sweet enough. Please Increase the amount of sugar as per taste. As I had it with Icing sugar drizzled, I dint realise that.
