A new book, a new recipe!
As you know, I like to have a recipe that I use for promo for my books. The books aren't about cooking, but the dish shows up in the book, then I create a recipe card for it and use that as promo for the book.
Well, I got the cart before the horse this time: I've got a recipe, but didn't have the book.
Luckily, I was working on a new book and I found a way to sneak this item in there. Isn't it funny how that happens sometimes? You have something good that sort of falls into your lap, but you're not quite sure how to use it. Then you turn around, and voila: there's the use!
The heroine in this book is a woman who's inherited some Big Money (or she will inherit it if her ex-brother-in-law will drop his lawsuit). I try very hard to keep politics, etc., out of my books, but some of the recent political figures are just too good to pass up -- I couldn't make up characters like that!
So a couple of the characters are based on people in the news today. Depending on how the elections come out this fall, we'll see if my villain scenario is right or wrong
Give this one a try: it should be interesting since I've never seen a recipe for single-serving chocolate cake. Here's a caveat: I haven't tried this one yet, but I have it on good authority that it's yummy.
So give it a try!

5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
4 tablespoons cake flour(that’s plain flour, not self-rising)
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips(optional)
a small splash of vanilla
1 coffee mug
Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well
Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla, and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.
The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don’t be alarmed!
Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).
