Okay, so here comes the ultimate recipe for how to make a cake in less than 5 minutes! :D

You need:
- a big mug
- a microwave
- flour
- sugar
- cocoa powder
- chocolate chips or chocolate spread (I used Nutella)
- oil
- milk
- an egg
- vanilla aroma (not essential)

Step 1:
Fill a quarter of the mug with flour.

Step 2:
Add 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 3 TBS of sugar, 3 TBS of chocolate chips or chocolate spread, 3 TBS of milk, 3 TBS of oil and the egg.

Step 3:
If you like, also add a drop of vanilla aroma.

Step 4:
Stir it all in the mug until you have a smooth cake batter.

Step 5:
Put it in the microwave for 2 minutes on the highest level. Be careful when you take the hot mug out again!

Step 6:
Done! Enjoy your mugcake! :D

Guess what I'm eating right now, haha. :D Actually, I was really surprised that it worked, but it does! And it's really delicious, too, so just try it out :)
And don't be scared to do something wrong, because if even I managed to make that cake (you know how bad I am at cooking and baking xD), you will manage it as well ;)
Oh and I even used substitutes for some of the ingredients because of my allergies: I used gluten free flour, soy milk and raw cane sugar. And it worked nevertheless! :D

That sounds really interesting. I'll have to try it once I find a big enough mug to do this. Congrats for making something yummy and allergen friendly :D

Thanks! Yeah it's really a great recipe. :) The only downside of it is that because it is so quick, I'll probably bake much more cake now than I did before and get fat xD
