5 Minutes Chocolate Cake Fast2eat

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 of 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.

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, oil and whisk.
  • Add sugar and chocolate powder and whisk until smooth.
  • Add flour and whisk until all ingredients are combined and the 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 it in 2. You want enough headspace 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.
