5 minutes chocolate cake

Category: Recipe

The microwaved chocolate cake recipe came through my inbox courtesy of Vicvanvinkle whom , in my books, has upped the ante in baking. She has, single-handedly perfected the art of laziness in baking in its purest form! I like! 😀

I’m no expert but I’m a big believer of doing things from scratch (ok, so I admit I’m a retarded cooking snob) .I just believe they taste better. In this case, that means I’d rather work with proper baking time using a conventional oven. But, out of curiosity I might just try this instant 5-minute cake one of these days.

Here is the recipe if you are curious and want to give it a go:

5 minutes chocolate cake
Write a review
  1. 1 large coffee mug (Vicvanvinkle used a ceramic soup bowl)
  2. 4 tablespoons plain flour (do not use self-rising)
  3. 4 tablespoons sugar
  4. 2 tablespoons baking cocoa
  5. 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  6. 1 egg
  7. 3 tablespoons milk
  8. 3 tablespoons oil
  9. 3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
  10. Small splash of vanilla
  11. Chocolate syrup (optional)
  12. Whipped topping (optional)
  13. Cherries (optional)
  1. Add dry ingredients to mug, & mix well .
  2. Add egg & mix thoroughly.
  3. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
  4. Add chocolate chips (if using), vanilla, mix again.
  5. Set mug in the microwave & cook for 2آ½ to 3 min at 1,000 watts.
  6. Cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don’t be alarmed! Some report that 2آ½ minutes works best. It depends upon your microwave. So, watch carefully to not over do it!
  7. Remove from microwave.Allow cake to cool a little, then tip out onto a plate, if desired.
  8. Drizzle with chocolate syrup and top with whipped topping and cherries, if desired!
  9. This can serve 2 if you care to share!
