5 Minute Chocolate Cake

October 24, 2011

Below is a recipe sent to friends who love chocolate – not matter the place – no matter the time. You don’t have to keep a secret stash of high end product around the pantry. What you have will work fine…then after the first trial, you’ll know where to upgrade the chocolate related ingredients. Do you have any ice cream or whipped cream on stand by? These two go well.

It zaps in a FLASH like this:
5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE CAKE that you can microwave
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa powder (this is not hot chocolate mix!)
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons chocolate melted
A small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee cup (MicroSafe)
Add dry ingredients to mug and mix well.
Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and olive oil and mix well.
Add the chocolate melted and vanilla extract, and mix again.
Put your cup in the microwave and let it run for 3 minutes at 1,000 watts.
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.
Then EAT! (This can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous.)
