This barely qualifies as a recipe. More just a list of good, sneaky substitutions.

Vengeance Cookies.

OK, take the standard, ordinary Toll House cookie recipe.

Dump the chips and the nuts. This is not about giving sweet surprises. At least, not in that sense.

Here's the other changes:

Sugar: Use one full cup of brown sugar, and only half a cup of white sugar.

Extracts: 3/4 tsp of ALMOND extract, and 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract.

And that's really all there is.

Serving- ether ignore the baking side, and freeze it up to be served chilled on occasion, or bake normally and deliver a batch to your friend. Tell them the recipe name after they've eaten a full cookie, and then just walk away smiling, not giving anything further away.

All right recipe time. This one hearkens back to my childhood, as being one of the favorite cookies my mother made- I got to discover the joys of these and Spider-man comics at damn near the same time. So making a batch of these pretty much takes me back blistering hot august days in the tri-cities, readng Spidey in digest form with a giant sized glass of orange soda... and these- the ultimate cookie:

The cake in a mug recipe, as ganked from [ profile] mahariel and [ profile] prairieflower:

4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
a small splash of vanilla extract
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 (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.

Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts (high). The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed! Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.

EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous). And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world? Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!

And, since me and the kidlet have time to kill, I have now attempted this recipe. Had to use canola oil in place of the more tyical vegetable oil, but otherwise, followed the recipe- sans chocolate chips.

The end result? Well, it's an ugly little spud. I also didn't quite mix well enough. bit of powder at the bottom. That probably wasn't aided by the shape of the mug I was using (mine flared out a bit at the base.)

The taste? Well, it ain't heaven in a mug, but it certainly is chocolate cake. I'd give it maybe a five out of ten on flavor. Texture's a bit dry, though I wonder how much that would be different with chips and veg oil in the mix. That could also be a microwave issue- our igh is apparently 1300 watts as opposed to 1000.

Overall- it ain't great, but it most certainly IS decent chocolate cake in a mug, done inside of three minutes. Perfect snack for a day like this.

Posting this up for self reference more than anything else.
As some of you know, I have a bit of an unusual pet. Specifically, a sugar glider named Spike. Ayways, this is the recipe for his glider porridge, which he needs every night. I'm posting it up, just so I can ditch the hard copy of it:
