March 12, 2012 at 4:41 pm Leave a comment

Ever have a craving for warm, gooey chocolate? This recipe has been ‘borrowed’ from a poster on and ever-so-slightly altered. It’s a mix that creates individual servings of chocolate cake cooked in the microwave; perfect for quickly and easily indulging that craving we all know too well. Just add water, chocolate chips, and vanilla to the mix, stir, and zap; no eggs, no fuss.

The Mix
1 cup flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 cup dry milk powder
1/4 cup cocoa
largish pinch of salt
chocolate chips (optional)
1 teaspoon instant espresso powder (optional)
vanilla (optional)

Combine all the ingredients and store in an air-tight container

Bake a Cake
Mix 4 tablespoons of cake mix with 2 tablespoons water, and a scant 1/8 teaspoon vanilla in a small mug or tea cup (about 6 ounces). Add about 6 chocolate chips now.

Cook in the microwave on high for 35-45 seconds. The top should look and feel dry.

Let rest for 2 minutes. Garnish as you wish, or just eat it plain.

This mix produces approximately 10 servings.
