Are you a person who craves chocolate now and then? Do you hesitate baking a cake with the fear of ending up eating more than you want and those extra pounds? Then this one is something for you.
I had got this recipe in my email long back and made it a couple of times. Frankly, this is not the best chocolate cake but it passes well for one good chocolate cake. A friend of mine took the ingredients to work and prepared it in her office kitchen during one of her coffee breaks!! Now, that's definitely some motivation, right?
The best part of this cake is it can be prepared in 5 minutes from start to end. It can be served as a dessert when a friend comes visiting you or when you really need something to cheer you up. Did you know when you reverse the word Stressed you get Desserts?:) So here we go with the destressing.
You will try it and tell me how it turned out, wont you?:)
Ingredients for 1 mug:
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
3 tablespoons sugar
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons milk
1/4 tsp vanilla
You need a coffee mug and a microwave too!
In the mug, mix together all purpose flour, cocoa, sugar, baking soda and salt.
Add oil, milk and vanilla and mix well with a spoon. Make sure there are no lumps underneath.
Microwave at 600W for 1 minute. Then turn the microwave to highest power, in my case it was 800W and microwave 1 more minute. The cake started rising over the top but went down when the microwave turned off.
Take out and allow to cool. Drizzle some powdered sugar on top before serving.
Serves: 1 mug (you can share it with another person)
Time Required: 5 minutes
