Making a cake from scratch in five minutes (or less) might sound like a fantasy. All it takes is a microwave and a bowl, and after a couple minutes, you’ll have yourself a light and puffy, moist cake and almost zero clean up. You whisk the ingredients in the same Bowl that you will consume and it is ready in just 3 minutes in the microwave. You likely have all the ingredients in your pantry already.

When you get that late night craving or want a small batch dessert, this chocolate cake is for you! Trust me and make this cake! It will make your day.

This chocolate cake recipe can be made for one or two (if you like to share). It is one of the easiest dessert recipes you’ll ever make! If you are looking for a real cake like dessert for one (or two) this is it!

It’s even more delicious with a scoop of vanilla or chocolate ice cream.

5 Minutes Chocolate Cake Fast2eat

Making a cake from scratch in five minutes (or less) might sound like a fantasy. All it takes is a microwave and a bowl, and after a couple minutes, you’ll have yourself a light and puffy, moist cake and almost zero clean up.

Servings: 2 people
Calories: 445kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 Egg
  • 4 tbsp Milk
  • 3 tbsp Oil
  • 4 tbsp Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Chocolate powder
  • 4 tbsp All purpose flour
  • 1 tsp Baking powder

Instructions

  • In a microwave-safe bowl*, whisk an egg.
  • Add the milk, and oil and whisk.
  • Add sugar and chocolate powder and whisk until smooth.
  • Add flour and whisk until all ingredients are combined and batter has no clumps.
  • Add the baking powder and stir gently until incorporated. The batter is softer than a regular batter but that's the way it is. Do not increase the flour or you'll have a tough cake!
  • Add anything** you'd like (I usually don't add anything) in the middle of the batter. Just drop it in the middle, no need to push it down and sink it in the batter. It does that on its own when it cooks.
  • Place a paper towel into the microwave and set the bowl on top (this is to catch any batter if your cake overflows).
  • Centre your bowl in the middle of the microwave and cook on High for 3 mins, or until it has stopped rising and is firm to the touch.
  • Carefully remove from microwave using Oven Mitt and enjoy!

Notes

* I've used a 750 ml (25 oz) bowl and it was only just big enough, a mug would be too small and you would need to split in 2. You want enough head space for the cake to rise without pouring over.
**A little bit of peanut butter, hazelnut chocolate spread (Nutella), chocolate chips, nuts, or raisins… And always soft ice cream and/or whipped cream on top would make this recipe even better.
You can also double or triple the recipe. Keep it in the refrigerator (without the baking powder that you should proportionally add just before baking) and pour enough into a cup for any time you would like a treat.

It is insanely delicious. This cake is moist and has the perfect crumb. I cannot imagine making a chocolate cake using any other recipe. It is so Fast and easy to make.

What I love about this Chocolate cake, and as well as this Brazilian Carrot Cake, is that they are very simple to make. They are made in a blender and take less than 15 minutes to put together. Most often you just need to put your ingredients in the blender, turn it on, empty into a baking tin, and bake. Simple! No electric or hand mixer, no KitchenAid, just blend it up.

Chocolate Cake Fast2eat Recipe

This is the Fast, easy and most amazing Chocolate Cake. This is the chocolate cake you’ve been dreaming of! It is everything that a chocolate cake should be.
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time25 mins
Total Time35 mins
Course: Desserts
Cuisine: Brazilian
Keyword: Cake, Chocolate Cake, Easy, easy-to-prepare, Fast, Quick
Servings: 25 people
Calories: 106kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 cup Oil
  • 2 Egg
  • 2 cups All purpose flour
  • 1 cup Chocolate powder
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Baking powder

Instructions

  • Using a Blender Beat the eggs, milk and oil.
  • Add flour, sugar, chocolate powder to a Large Mixing Bowl. Stir with a Whisk to combine.
  • Add the mixed liquid through flour mixture and Whisk until combined well.
  • Add the Baking Powder and slowly mix it.
  • Preheat the oven to 180–190°C (350–375°F). Grease with Cooking Spray and flour a 9-Inch Cake Pan or a Fluted Tube/Bundt Pan.
  • Bake for approximately 25-40 min ((depending on your pan) or until a toothpick or Cake Tester inserted in the center of the chocolate cake comes out clean.

Assembly

  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes, remove from the pan and cool completely. If using a Fluted Tube/Bundt Pan, let cool to just barely warm before inverting.
  • If filling the cake, on a work surface, using a Cake Cutter cut and remove the rounded tops of each cake. Cut the cake in half horizontally to make 2 slices.
  • Transfer to a Cake Serving Platter.
  • With a Silicone Spatula spread your favourite filling, such as this amazing Chocolate icing Fast2eat Recipe or Fluffy Meringue Frosting Fast2eat Recipe.

Notes

Finish it with your favourite icing or this Chocolate icing Fast2eat Recipe or Fluffy Meringue Frosting Fast2eat Recipe and garnish as desired. You certainly can use a different frosting! You are also welcome to use any other frosting recipe that you like or even with no filling or icing at all.
You can use this recipe to make chocolate cupcakes. Just reduce the baking time.
Also, you can try a different pan size but you’ll need to adjust cooking times and be careful as to how much you fill the pan. This recipe is written for 9-inch round pans, which is a standard size and is meant to be eaten as a 2 layer cake.

Brazilian Carrot Cake Fast2eat Recipe
It’s a super simple and Fast recipe and the carrots are actually pureed into the blender so it’s completely smooth. The carrots add the perfect subtle sweetness and a beautiful orange color.

I would just advise you to double the icing recipe in case you want to make a layered cake filled with this Chocolate icing. And in case you end up with more icing than you need, don’t worry: you can always eat it, spoonful at a time.

Fluffy Meringue Frosting tastes delicious, it doesn’t crust, and isn’t overly sweet or greasy. In short, it’s almost perfect!
