5 Minute Chocolate Cake

A good friend of mine sent me this recipe last week, and it sounded so good, I knew I had to try it out as a possible "Tasty Tuesday" treat. I gave it a whirl yesterday, and I have to tell you, for a five minute treat -- it was pretty delicious. It was a very hearty, dense cake -- almost like a chocolate pound cake.

The good news (for me) is that it's too dense and rich to eat it every day. More good news -- because it's so "heavy," you won't think twice about cutting it in half and sharing it with a friend. The bad news (for me) is that when I'm having a chocolate craving (a very frequent occurrence for this chocoholic), this is such an easy fix that it will quickly jump to the forefront of my mind.


You'll Need
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 (Micro Safe)

Step by Step
  • 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.
  • 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 ! (Share with a friend for half the guilt!)

NOTE: Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream. Yummy.
