There are times in a writer's life, as well as in life in general, when you really really want something sweet, and chocolate, and hot, right now. For those moments, I bring you Chocolate cake in a coffee mug. It's a microwave recipe, it's easy, and it's surprisingly good. I suggest trying it with a scoop of ice cream. A few things to keep in mind: make sure your mug is microwave safe; this cake gets very hot, so no plastic, for instance, and stay away from metallic glazes, or delicate china. Also, like many microwave baked goods, eat this while it's fresh, or it's a bit rubbery.
