Ingredients

4 Tbsp
all purpose flour
4 Tbsp
sugar
2 Tbsp
cocoa powder
1
egg
3 Tbsp
milk
3 Tbsp
oil
1/8 tsp
vanilla
2 Tbsp
chocolate chips (optional)
2 Tbsp
pecan or walnut pieces (optional)

Step-By-Step

1Use one large coffee mug (Microwave Safe) to make your cake.
2Add dry ingredients to the mug and stir well.
3Add the egg and stir thoroughly.
4Pour in the milk and oil and stir well.
5Add the chocolate chips and/or nuts (if using) and vanilla extract, and stir well again.
