So, to make us feel a bit better, I share with you the recipe for happiness:
Instant Chocolate Cake for One
4 Tbsp cake or all purpose flour (not self-rising)
4 Tbsp Splenda (or sugar, if you must)
2 Tbsp baking cocoa
3 Tbsp milk
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
3 Tbsp chocolate or carmel chips (optional)
A small dash of vanilla flavoring
1 microwaveable coffee mug
Add dry ingredients to mug and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and the oil and mix again. Add the vanilla and the chips and mix some more.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.
The cake will rise over the top, but do not be alarmed!
Allow to cool for a few minutes, and then enjoy.
Take that, Winter!
