  1. First of all, get your china mug. It is recommended that you use a large sized one, because once your cake starts to heat it will grow up. If you choose a smaller can you will probably end up having a mess in your kitchen.
  2. The next step is adding all the ingredients together. The order of addition does not matter as long as you mix the contents well. When you notice the mixture is creamy and without any sugar or chocolate little balls, put the mug inside the microwave on average power for 3 minutes. Depending on your microwave you might need to keep it a little longer. You will know your mug cake is ready when it puffs up the mug. The consistency of your mug cake will be fluffy.
  3. The next and last step is to enjoy your quick and delicious recipe of the day! Make sure you let your mug cake sit for a few minutes in order to cool down.

      What a unique recipe. I have not heard of this one, and I'm in the know when it comes to sweets (-: I have most of the ingredients, so I may just try this recipe. I do have a questions, what is kitchen oil? Is it comparable to vegetable oil?
