What you need:
3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp flour
3 Tbsp milk
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
3 Tbsp egg white (save the yolk for something else)
1/4 tsp vanilla

What you do:
1. In a 1-1/2 cup microwave-safe mug, blend the cocoa, sugar, and flour together.
2. Add the milk, oil, egg white, and vanilla.
3. Stir vigorously for 2 minutes, making sure you mix everything together well.
4. Cook in microwave for 2 minutes. Check to make sure it’s cooked on the bottom by lifting it a little with a spoon. If it’s runny, cook 10 seconds more at a time until it’s done. Do not overcook it, or it will be rubbery. You want the texture to be moist and slightly undercooked.
5. Let it cool until just warm and serve plain or with whipped cream or fresh fruit.

Serves: 1.
