Sometimes you need cake. chocolate cake. And you need it now. For those times, this cake is just perfect! It's not the best cake, and it definitely isn't something you want to serve for company. But, hey, its great for that chocolate fix.
I first saw this cake on the blog, Dizzy Dee, and I knew I was going to make it right away. I took the laptop and went straight to the kitchen! Here it goes - be warned that its not the best cake texture-wise, but something that you might end up making more often than you should.
Microwave Chocolate Cake
(recipe from Dizzy Dee)
4 tbsp All-Purpose Flour
4 tbsp Sugar
2 tbsp Cocoa
3 tbsp Milk
3 tbsp Oil
Mix flour, sugar and cocoa in a mug. Spoon in 1 egg. Add the milk and oil and mix well.
Microwave on high for 3 minutes. It'll begin to rise and then settle down in the mug. Remove the cake from the mug onto a plate and enjoy!
