Happy Passover and a 5 Min Chocolate Cake Recipe!

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 (MicroSafe)
Add dry ingredients to 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. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.EAT ! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).Of course, I cannot make or eat this being diabetic but my sister sent me this recipe. It made my mouth water. I gave up cake for lent as an extra incentive not to have any. Damn I miss cake so much I cannot tell you. Right now I would trade my firstborn for a piece of cake with lemon filling and coconut frosting. Oh yea.
I want to wish my Jewish friends a Happy Passover. I know many will soon be sitting down to their seder with family and I hope it will be a special time.
