Five Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

This recipe was emailed to me from a colleague at work.
4 tablespoons flour 
4 tablespoons sugar 
2 tablespoons cocoa 
1 egg beaten
3 tablespoons milk 
3 tablespoons oil 
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional) 
A small splash of vanilla extract 
1 large coffee mug (Microwave Safe)

  1. Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. 
  2. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. 
  3. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
  4. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again. 
  5. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts. 
  6. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed! 
  7. Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
  8. EAT!
