Microwave chocolate cake

Treat yourself right.

BIG pile of whipped cream.
lots of chocolate.

Anyone remember that raffi song about broccoli and chocolate? I loved that song.

and....studying for finals.
Livin' the dream, let me tell you.

Recipe over at Serious Eats!
(I only nuked it for 2 1/2 minutes because our microwave is stronger (1500 watts).)

Revision: Since this recipe has egg, it's sort of rubbery. My new favorite chocolate mug in a cake recipe (no egg!) is...

Nora's Chocolate Cup-O-Cake

Into a large coffee mug put:

5 tbsp. all-purpose flour
2 rounded tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
2 rounded tbsp. sugar
1/8 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt

Mix these ingredients together and add

3 tbs. milk
1 tbs. oil
1/4 tsp. vanilla

You can add some chocolate chips or nuts now if you want… adding a small handful of chocolate chips and pushing them down into the middle of the batter makes a great molten chocolate cake.

Put it in the microwave on half power for 2 minutes ish. Check it at one though… it cooks really fast and you don’t want to overcook it or it goes dry… if the top is bouncy and a fork stuck in it comes out clean, its ready. It’s good with ready whip squirted all over the top.

P.S. This cake is crumbly, so it won't turn out of the mug onto a plate very well. Just eat it from the cup!
P.P.S. I can never finish one of these. They're HUGE.

Recipe from eons.
