Willy Wonka's Micro Cake

“There is something about very cold weather that gives one an enormous appetite. Most of us find ourselves beginning to crave rich steaming stews and hot apple pies and all kinds of delicious warming dishes; and because we are all a great deal luckier than we realize, we usually get what we want—or near enough.”
Roald Dahl, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

So the winter is upon us, it seems the only thing for it is to make like the effervescient, ever singing and dancing Mr Willy Wonka and whip up something yummy and exciting from not a lot.
How does chocolate cake sound?

It is rumoured that when Mr Wonka is relaxing, long after the Oompa Lumpa's are in bed- he knows how to make phizzwizzing cake in less then 3 mintues.
Much like a Golden Tickets to his factory, the recipe for this, Willy Wonka's Micro Cake, can be found here:

For this you will need: 
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons of milk
  • 3 tablespoons of oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
 1 large mug & a microwave

Add dry ingredients to the mug, and mix well. 

Crack an egg and add it to your mug. Be sure to mix it well to avoid any pockets of flour in the corners. 

Pour in the milk, oil and chocolate chips, and mix well. Add the vanilla extract. 

Pop your mug into the microwave & heat for 3 minutes. Wait until the cake stops rising, and sets in the mug.  If it is still very goey, add for 1 min extra.
If necessary, run a knife around the sides of the mug, and tip the still warm cake out of the mug and onto a saucer.
 You can make it even more chocolaty by adding some Chocolate Chips into the mixture before you Mircowave.  

“He turned and reached behind him for the chocolate bar, then he turned back again and handed it to Charlie. Charlie grabbed it and quickly tore off the wrapper and took an enormous bite. Then he took another…and another…and oh, the joy of being able to cram large pieces of something sweet and solid into one's mouth! The sheer blissful joy of being able to fill one's mouth with rich solid food!
'You look like you wanted that one, sonny,' the shopkeeper said pleasantly.
Charlie nodded, his mouth bulging with chocolate.”
Roald Dahl,
