Microwave Chocolate Cake!

Sunday, March 18, 2012

]I was being totally lazy today while the hubster was out with his buddy. I wanted chocolate cake pretty badly, and a store bought cake didn't sound great and neither did making a whole cake (well because eventually I'd be the one eating it by myself). I had been playing around on pinterest and found a whole ton of microwaveable "cakes" in a mug.

It was super easy, and in less than 3 minutes, I had a steaming mug full of brownie/chocolate cake! Here's the recipe::

1/4 cup of flour
1/4 cup of packed brown sugar
2 tsp of unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp of milk
2 tsp of oil

Mix it all together until it becomes a very think paste. Stick it in the microwave on 1 minute. After that, if it isn't done (every microwave is different) put in for 30 seconds until it's cooked, but make sure you don't over cook it.  I did and certain parts had a bit of a rubbery feel, so keep an eye on it :-)

I added a banana sliced up on top well, just because I could. You could add caramel, whipped cream, ice cream, or whatever else you wanted. 

If you felt really adventurous, you could put a scoop of chocolate frosting in the middle before you put it in the microwave and the cake would puff up around it and you'd have your own mini lava cake!
