instant chocolate cake in a mug

I hate to play into stereotypes, but there are some times in a woman's month -- er, life -- when she just needs chocolate cake. This isn't the finest gourmet cake you'll ever eat, but it exactly does the trick.

From the Food Network, with a few modifications...

Whisk 1/4 cup flour, 1/4 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons dark cocoa powder, 1 egg, 4 tablespoons milk, 2 tablespoons vegetable oil and a dash of vanilla extract and salt in a large mug until smooth. Throw in a handful of chocolate chips and mix again. Microwave until puffed and the top is done, about 4 minutes.
