Three Minute Microwave Chocolate Cake

My friend emailed me this recipe a few years ago.  I have to admit, I was a little hesitant at first to try it, because honestly the thought of making a cake in a microwave seemed a little strange.  But one evening the need for chocolate overcame my hesitation.  I've never looked back.  :)

What's more perfect than a single serving piece of chocolate cake?  It is totally bad for you, but after all it is cake.  And every once in a while (in my humble opinion), it is perfectly fine to indulge in some sweets.


In about 5 minutes, you can whip together this yummy treat. 


In a large coffee cup, combine all the dry ingredients and mix well.


I always mix my wet ingredients and the egg in a separate cup.  (It can get a little messy if you try to combine it all in the coffee cup, but it can be done if you want.)


Pour into dry ingredients and mix until it resembles a cake batter. 



Microwave for about 3 minutes.  Remember times may vary depending on the strength of your microwave.  And, viola!  You can enjoy it in the cup, or serve on a plate. 


You can throw in some extras if you want.  I've tried chocolate chips, nuts, shredded coconut and used coffee instead of vanilla.  All delicious!  This cake is the perfect answer for your chocolate fix.  Or your breakfast, which is what I'm doing now.  Ha!

  2. I love this recipe! And now, because you shared it with us, I will love you forever! What a great way to satisfy my chocolate loving sweet tooth. I rarely make chocolate cake because I end up eating it all by myself. Now I don't have to feel {too} bad about eating it all!
