baking: 5 minute microwave espresso cake

once i put the kids to bed, i always go rummaging through the kitchen to find something indulgent and sweet
this is where the coffee mug cake flies in and tells me
"way to go, emily! the kids are still alive and the house is pretty darn clean! treat yourself to something as sweet as you!"
AWESOME! i think i WILL!
what i love about this shortcut- it's easy to bake... since you use the microwave and takes a total of 5 minutes!
in a large coffee mug, add 4 tablespoons of flour
4 tablespoons of sugar
2 tablespoons of espresso powder
3 tablespoons of milk and 3 tablespoons of oil
add some of your favorite nuts- i used walnuts- & some chocolate chips
and don't forget half an egg 
{ i almost forgot this step! }
mix well and microwave for 3 minutes
cooked to perfection!
add some of your favorite ice cream and dive on it!
