I was reading online about making chocolate cake in 5 minutes, can’t remember where now but it was awhile back and got me interested. Decided to try it out since we’ve already got all the ingredients at home, and I was craving chocolate, and I was feeling lazy ;)
Guess what? It seriously takes just 5 minutes – inclusive of preparation and cooking time!
The secret? Making it in a cup, and microwaving to cook. I was pretty impressed it actually worked, it cooked up well and was so quick to make. It does taste like chocolate cake and is great to curb a sugar fix, but is definitely not the luscious kind you’d get when you bake it properly. It does have an ‘instant’ taste, and can get dry easily so be careful not to zap it in the microwave for too long. That said, eat it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you’ve got yourself a fantastic, super-quick dessert!
All the ingredients you’ll need
In each cup, mix 2 tablespoons flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, 2 tablespoons cocoa, 1 tiny pinch of baking powder and salt
Beat 1 egg with 3 tablespoons oil, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence and 3 tablespoons milk
Divide and pour mixture equally into the 2 cups
Stir well, then add in chocolate chips. Cook on Med/High in the microwave for 1.5 mins,
make sure it’s still a little wet or you’ll get a dry cake! This picture is before it’s cooked,
forgot to take one of the finished product :P
