tweeks on the 5 minute chocolate cake in a mug

i originally posted the 5 minute chocolate cake in a mug recipe with my results here since then, it has become insanely popular treat for me to make this at work. since then, i've come up with my own tweeks to the recipe as well as some add-ins.
my take on the 5 minute chocolate cake in a mug:
9 heaping teaspoons(i just use a regular dining spoon for everything in the recipe.) hot cocoa mix
3 teaspoons of flour
1 large egg
4 teaspoons water
4 teaspoons oil
2 teaspoons sugar
i stir the dry ingredients together to make sure they are thoroughly mixed before adding the wet ingredients. then, zap in microwave for 3 minutes. usually after 2 mins i have to start and stop it every 15 seconds to prevent run over.
yummy add-ins
a few drops of your favorite extract my favorite being peppermint
chocolate sauce or fudge sauce makes it even more like a brownie
peanut butter especially yummy if you stir it in after everything else is mixed up leaving it looking marbelized
strawberry jam
not a lot of room for toppings, but if you spoon it onto a plate you can top it
sprinkle with powdered sugar
a little cocoa or hot cocoa
drizzle with chocolate sauce
drizzle with your favorite icing
my friend sam's fave topped with a bit of peanut butter
