Five Minute Chocolate Cake

Five Minute Chocolate Cake
This is an interesting little cake. Sure, you might be able to bake a better cake with other means, but for a few minutes and few ingredients this one is fun.
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 tbsp whisked egg - 1 egg is too much, 1 egg white is too eggy, 1 yolk is too dense, but 2 tblsp is just right!
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 3 tbsp chocolate chips
  • splash vanilla or other flavoring - try peppermint or cinnamon
  • Optional: For a fudgier version, omit egg
  1. Add all of the dry ingredients to the mug and mix.
  2. Add the egg and combine well. It gets pretty pasty at the point.
  3. Stir in milk and oil.
  4. Add chocolate chips* and splash of vanilla. Stir well.
  5. Microwave for 3 minutes in a 1000w oven, or 4 minutes in a 700w oven. It will start to crown over the top of the mug. Don't panic! It will collapse once the heat stops.
  6. Note: Cooking time may vary depending on the power of the microwave oven.
