Let's continue with the party theme. LJ-user xiphias just posted this on the b0st0n community, and it looks like maybe the best thing ever? so I think you should all have it, too.

You know the Five Minute Microwave Cake recipe, right?

Get biggest microwave safe mug you've got, spray inside with cooking spray.

4 Tbl flour
4 Tbl sugar
2 Tbl unsweetened cocoa powder

Mix these together in the mug,

Stir in:
1 egg
3 Tbl milk
3 Tbl vegetable oil (oil is the ONE thing I don't always have on hand, so I often melt 3 Tbl butter; it works.)

Mix with a fork or something until more-or-less smooth.

Nuke for 3 minutes. It may well swell over the top of the mug; don't worry about it.

Let it cool for a few seconds, and either eat it out of the mug, or tip it out onto a plate.

If you've got these things in your pantry, you'll never be more than five minutes away from cake.

I have yet to try this, but if it actually works, we're all going to be living happily ever after.
