Munchie Mondays - Five Minute Chocolate Cake

6:00 AM

Today was my first foray into freezer cooking.  I only made a few things, and it turned out to be good that I wasn't trying to cook for the month, because Ladybug wasn't feeling well.  Luckily, the hubster "Jethro" (he picked this name, LOL) was home so I was able to get in the kitchen.

Notice the abundance of vegetables!  I'm "doing right"
 I made pork tenderloin, mashed potatoes and vegetables today and then Cheesy Chicken Penne, Mongolian Beef and Rosemary Pot Roast for the freezer.  The penne almost didn't make it into the freezer.  I did way more "sampling" than anyone should've done.  I'm pretty sure I should call it "mealing".  I "mealed" the penne a lot.  I love sun dried tomatoes, I'm actively fighting the urge to go eat the rest of them out of the jar.
Freezer Goodness!

Other than Jethro proclaiming "Hey!!! It sounds like you're making vegetables!" he loved everything.  Especially the five minute chocolate cake.

Mmmmmmmm Caaaaakkkkeeeee

The recipe calls for a "Large Mug".  My mugs all looked kind of puny, so I used our giant soup mugs, which were perfect.  Especially to add ice cream, whipped cream and sprinkles to.

4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


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