lazy cake

sometimes, i want cake. but i don't want to bake. so i microwave.
yes, microwave chocolate cake.
it's not fantastic, no, but it's quick, easy and you only need to clean one cup, and two spoons.
take a microwave safe mug and add:
1 tbsp + 1 tsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp flour (i use whole wheat)
1/8 tsp baking powder
tiny pinch of salt
2 tbsp sugar (i actually like 1 heaping tbsp instead of 2)
1 large egg
1 tbsp milk (non fat)
1 tbsp plain yogurt (non fat)
1 tbsp chocolate chips (or more, however much you feel like)
mix it all together and microwave it for 1:30 min on high. my microwave's pretty strong, so if your microwave isn't, maybe 2 min. i like to spri
nkle a few more chocolate chips on the top when it comes right out. b/c i use non fat milk and non fat yogurt, i admit, it's a little dry. also, if you don't eat it within 30 min, it gets hard b/c it was microwaved. but, the whole thing is done in just a few minutes and there's so little cleanup.
and it's still pretty tasty.
