|This cake? Harder to make than mine!|
So I'm going to make a chocolate cake. At this time of night? No, I'm going to make a chocolate cake in a cup. Lucky you! I'm going to share the recipe which I've had for a couple of decades.
5 Minute Chocolate Cake in a Cup
You'll need microwave-safe mugs or cups or small Pyrex baking dishes.
You can make this recipe in 2 or 4 cups depending on how large a cake you want. I actually use 4 cups and serve them on their matching saucers. Cute little small cakes to serve.
Add some whipped cream or vanilla ice cream on top of the cakes for a really yummy dessert.
- 4 tablespoons self-rising flour
- 4 tablespoons any kind of sugar (white, raw, brown)
- 2 tablespoons cocoa
- 1 egg, beaten
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 3 tablespoons oil (canola, safflower, sunflower, or generic vegetable oil)
- 3 tablespoons chocolate chips
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Place mugs in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts power. The cakes will rise beautifully. Remove from microwave and allow to cool a little. You can tip it out onto a plate or serve the cup with its saucer and a spoon.
Delicious, easy, and a quick way to get a chocolate fix! What's not to love?
