Pour in the milk and vanilla extract into a bowl and mix the sugars until dissolved. Slowly add the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Whisk until smooth. Put a few drops of red food color. Mix until well blended then add the vegetable oil. Then, transfer the batter to mugs spritzed with nonstick shortening spray (you may also brush butter to prevent the cake from sticking). Bake for one minute and 20 seconds in the microwave oven.

Pretty easy, right? Check out Raiza's video for the full demo:
