Five Minutes Away

don't ask why but i ended up in this looney crazy new-dress-a-day blog about a lady on a mission: 365 dresses in 365 days at $365 dollars. something like the julie julia project. brilliant, simply brilliant concepts.

i am still waiting for that shred of inspiration that will take me to blogosphere celebrity status.

as it is, i'm just enjoying this for myself and have gathered a few followers - not counting the chinese and russian blog spammers who jam my comment and chat boxes with offer to sell anything and everything from erection pills to nuclear warheads - both designed to end in a HUGE explosion.

hint, if you aren't following my blog then click on that link on the right side, yes the one that says you're selling your soul to this blogger.

weeeellll well well, enough of the rambling and back to the original subject of this entry: 365 days etc.

there was one entry that curiously published a cake recipe alongside the usual deconstruction of a horrid outfit into something usable. my concern is not really the outfit, it's the cake.

you see, it is tagged perfectly as the most dangerous cake ever. why? as the author said it, "we are only 5 minutes away from warm, gooey, delicious chocolate cake any time, night or day".

to make it more local, it's like knowing the recipe of the warm brownie cup of la marea and being able to whip it up in five minutes. interested? i am copying (literally plagiarizing) the recipe, pictures and commentary of the original author of what follows at this point. <- yes that point.

5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
A small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug (Microwave Safe)

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly before pouring in the milk and oil in. Keep mixing. Add the optional chocolate chips next (who makes that an option!) and vanilla extract, and mix again…

Put your mug in the micro wave and cook for three minutes at 1000 watts. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don’t be alarmed! Allow it to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.

EAT ! (this can serve two if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).
