Iconic Bakery: Care for a 5-minute chocolate mug cake?

Bluffton's newest cookbook is from an institution with the youngest residents. Bluffton Child Development Center released "Kitchen Classics" cookbook this fall. Copies are available at the Center for $12.

The book has 84 pages of recipes plus an index of recipes and additional information like ingredient substitutions, counting calories, and even napkin folding.

All recipes are from students (with help from their parents).

Here's a sample:
Five Minute Chocolate Mug Cake
From Jessica Dailey, mother of Carter, Caitlin and Coby

4 Tbsp flour
4 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp cocoa
1 egg
3 Tbsp milk
3 Tbsp oil
3 Tbsp chocolate chips (optional)
A small splash of vanilla
1 large 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 and vanilla extract, mix again.
Put your mug in a microwave and cook for 3 minutes on high.
The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't worry.
Allow to cool a little and tip out onto a plate if desired.
