2 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake
Nick spotted a copy of Lucky Peach, 2011's best new food magazine, at a bookstore this weekend and took a picture of this cake recipe on my iphone. Sorry, we promise to buy a copy next time, we swear.

I took inspiration from their recipe but swapped out most ingredients for healthier options.
2 T coconut oil
3 T whole milk
3 T maple syrup
3 T whole wheat pastry flour
2 T pure cocoa powder
3 T dark chocolate chips
small splash vanilla extract
1 small or medium coffee mug (microwave safe)
Put your mug into a microwave for 2 minutes. The recipe notes a 100-watt microwave so depending on the power you may have a more or less dense cake. The cake may rise over the top of the mug but don't be alarmed. Tip out onto a plate if desired or dig into the mug (which I prefer).
Why is this cake recipe the most dangerous recipe in the world? Because now we are only 2 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night.
