Food Friday - Mug Cake

I wasn't planning on posting a Food Friday today, but I remembered this recipe that I found a while ago, and it somehow seemed apropos today.  Enjoy.  (the variations to make it vegan are courtesy of me)

Chocolate mug cake

4 tablespoons flour 
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2-3 tablespoons applesauce
3 tablespoons soy milk
3 tablespoons oil (use applesauce for lower-fat variation)
splash of vanilla extract

optional: handfull of pecans

  1. In a large coffee mug, add dry ingredients and mix well.  
  2. Add oil, applesauce, and soy milk. Mix well.
  3. Place in microwave on High for 3 minutes. (The cake may rise over the top of the mug. do not be alarmed if it does)
  4. Allow to cool a little, eat directly from mug!
(Best slightly undercooked, so be careful).
