Chocolate Cake in a flash

Sometimes pregnancy can make you do crazy things.

Like going for a jog in the middle of the night. Or eating pickles dipped in strawberry yogurt. Or dyeing your hair in a wacky purple color.

I didn't do any of the above tho. But I did make something quite crazy last night.
I woke up at about 3 o'clock in the morning and made a chocolate cake - from scratch!

Here's the not-so-crazy part: it only took about 5 minutes to make one. I saw the recipe on YouTube the other day and thought it would be perfect for late night snack. Yes well apparently, a cake is consider a snack when you're pregnant.

Just dump in a few tablespoons of flour, sugar, cocoa powder, milk, oil, egg, vanilla essence and chocolate chips in a mug, and microwave it for 3 minutes (you can get the exact recipe here).

Then walla... the most dangerous cake is made!

The cake is spongy, not really soft and airy but it's not that bad. Especially when eaten with ice-cream.

And the next morning, I woke up with an extra 10 pounds! >_<
