Who doesn’t love home-made chocolate cake? And who isn’t far too lazy to do their own? (okay, that’s just me)

Five Minute Cake

But who wouldn’t take a shot at this make-in-a-mug and from-scratch and ready-in-five and otherwise-multi-hyphenated winner of a chocolate cake recipe from DizzyDee?

You need a 1000 watt microwave or an aptitude for math (to do the conversion) and one microwave-safe (there go those hyphens again and, come to think of it, the parentheses as well) mug for each serving. They want you to dump the finished cake out onto a plate, but they must have servants or dishwashers or something; I’d just eat it out of the mug with an iced tea spoon.

Bonus points: pig-shaped stencils on top with a sifting of icing sugar. I mean, anybody can make a five minute chocolate mug cake in a pig mug, but a five minute chocolate mug cake in a pig mug with sugar pigs on top? That’s gold star material.

    Sorry, but this cake really looks like poo. Literally.

    Well, that is why you add the sugar pigs! Nobody poops poo with sugar-frosted pigs on it!
