I was craving chocolate cake yesterday but didn't feel like going out to get any nor did I want a whole cake that I would have to eat myself. I've seen this recipe around and have been wanting to try it so this was the perfect opportunity. I had everything on hand and it was simple to put together.
I was ok, but nothing great. It's good for when you are really craving chocolate cake but don't have any other options. I found it chewy and lacking any realy chocolate flavor. I may try it again with some chocolate chips and see if that helps it but I'm not sure if it would make a big difference.

Splash of vanilla extract (I forgot to add this)
In a large mug mix together the flour, sugar and cocoa powder. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
