|5 minute microwave cake|
I had them prepare the batter in a bowl and then split between 3 smaller coffee mugs. With the smaller mugs, the microwave time was reduced to 2 minutes.
Just know that this is not "great" chocolate cake - it's a bit tough and there might be a lump and a bit of less-than-cooked batter at the bottom. On the plus side - it can be made in one large coffee mug, no dishes, and warm chocolate cake is ready for you in less than 5 minutes! Needles to say, my boys were impressed with themselves and their snow-day breakfast.
4 tbsp flour
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 large egg
3 tbsp milk
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Combine flour, brown sugar, cocoa powder and salt into a large coffee mug (or small bowl).
Stir in egg, milk, vegetable oil and vanilla, mixing until smooth.
If you are mixing inside a coffee mug, be sure to scrape the corners well.
Microwave on high for about 3 minutes or a bit less for 2 smaller mugs. Two minutes was a tad too much for 3 small cups.
Cake will puff up like a souffle and should appear to be “set” after 3 minutes.
Cake will fall once removed from the microwave.
Serve in the mug, or turned out into a bowl, with a bit of ice cream or whipped cream.
With that kind of breakfast, who's up for a snowball fight?
