So I received a forwarded email (thanks val) with this included…”The Most Dangerous Cake Recipe.”

Take a coffee cup and add:

  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional
  • splash of vanilla extract
  • large coffee mug

Mix all the dry ingredients well.  Then add the egg…mix…then the rest of ingridents…mix.  Then put that bad boy in the microwave for 3 minutes.

Where’s the danger?  You are only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake.  Dangerous indeed.

We all know I’m not much of a cook…but this just sounded sooooo easy.  So I gathered up all the ingredients and gave it a whirl.

Yes, that is a mickey  hand measuring spoon.

oooocake

ooooo cake!

ooooyucky

ugh!  icky-icky poo!  Dangerous cake, not so dangerous after all.  Maybe it was the vanilla extract that expired in 2004 (it was only a splash?)  or maybe it was the cocoa blend…but the most logical answer (considering my history), would be that it’s all the cook’s fault.  I get it…I should stick to painting food, but should any of you folks out there with five free minutes to kill decide to give it a try, do let me know if it’s just me…or the stupid recipe.
