Homemade Chocolate Cake…in a Microwave?

For those readers watching their waist line, I am sorry.

For those readers with a sweet tooth, you are welcome.

Believe it or not, chocolate cake made in a microwave exists! And no, I’m not talking about the Sara Lee microwaveable treats from the grocery store. When a friend recently introduced me to what I thought was impossible, I was rather shocked at how simple and good the end result was. With a coffee mug, a few ingredients and five minutes on your hands, you too can have homemade chocolate cake anytime you desire!

What you will need:

  • 1 coffee mug or microwave-safe container
  • 4 tablespoons of flour
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of baking cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons of milk
  • 3 tablespoons of oil
  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla
  • Chocolate chips (helps with flavoring)

What you will do:

  1. In a mixing bowl, mix the flour, sugar and baking cocoa together.
  2. Add the egg; mix thoroughly.
  3. Add the milk and oil; mix thoroughly.
  4. Add the vanilla and some chocolate chips.
  5. Pour batter into the mug.
  6. Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Naturally, the cake will rise! Poke a fork or toothpick through the center to make sure it is cooked. If not, microwave for an additional minute.
  7. Allow the cake to cool in the microwave for a few minutes.
  8. Eat!

For a larger cake, adjust the ingredients and time in the microwave. Again, I’m sorry and you are welcome. Enjoy!
