5-Minute Chocolate Cake

This is an excellent recipe for anyone who has ever had one of those cravings for something chocolatey.  This recipe requires no special equipment--just a mug and a fork!  The entire recipe, start to finish, takes less than 5 minutes.

As for taste, it hits the spot and satisfies that chocolate craving.  I recommend serving it with whipped cream or ice cream.  Mine came out a little dense and dry, so the ice cream I ate with it really balanced it out.  But I really couldn't complain for cake "baked" in a microwave!

  • 4 tablespoons cake flour
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil or melted butter
  1. Mix the flour, sugar, and cocoa powder in a mug.
  2. Add the egg, milk, and oil to the mug.  Mix well.
  3. Microwave on high for 3 minutes.  The "cake" will rise several inches over the mug and then fall.
  4. Shake the cake out of the mug onto a plate.
