Things that are better than they should be

Got this recipe from the Denver Post, and decided tonight was a good time to try it out:
Dangerous Chocolate Mug Cake
1 regular-sized coffee mug
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp baking cocoa
1 egg
3 tbsp milk
3 tbsp oil
3 tbsp chocolate chips (optional, but makes it taste best)
some nuts (optional)
small splash of vanilla
Directions: Add dry ingredients to mug, mix well. Add egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in milk and oil, mix well. Add chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla. Mix again. Microwave for 3 minutes on high. 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! (Serves two if you want to share.)

The results? Omigosh. As you can see, I made up three cakes (one for K, one for B, and one for me) and served them whipped homemade whipped cream on 'em. Wow. Okay... where is says serves two? Yeah, for sure. These things are rich! They're kind of like a cross between a brownie and cake, and after a few minutes of cooling resemble a brownie more than cake. None of us were able to finish our cakes; they're tasty as heck, but super sweet and rich... go make one, but be warned! (I'll be making them again for sure!)
