Cake In A Mug

Okay, so you can tell my this recipe what kind of cook I am. I was listening to the radio this morning and their recipe for the day was Cake In A Mug. You make a cake in a coffee mug in the microwave! I was all for it. I got the recipe and tried it out. It's made with stuff you already have in your house. Unless of course your like me and currently don't have any milk.

It tasted okay. It tasted more like a brownie. Kind of dry.
If your wanting something sweet and you have nothing in your house,
this would be perfect!
