Quick Cake in a Cup

If you haven't seen this yet, I don't know what to tell you...other than...keep reading.

Ever want chocolate cake, but not really much of a baker? Now you are. Get ready for this.

Five Minute Chocolate Cake...made in the microwave.

It's true. I tried it. And it was not too bad! Obviously it is no gourmet, Top Chef worthy Chocolate Cake, but it will definitely satisfy a craving. Also, there are probably many possible opportunities for innovations. You could whip up a quick frosting, or use some peanut butter, add chocolate chips (which I did), use part applesauce/oil, cut the recipe in half and make even mini-er cakes, add fruit, add nuts, etc. So get creative. Or don't, and just make some really easy, super fast Chocolate Cake and eat it.

Five Minute Microwave Chocolate Cake

4 Tablespoons flour
4 Tablespoons granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons cocoa
1 Egg
3 Tablespoons milk
3 Tablespoons oil
Pinch salt
Cooking spray
1 Mug

1. Spray inside of mug with cooking spray. Mix flour, sugar, salt and cocoa. Stir in egg. Pour in milk and oil and combine thoroughly.

2. Put in microwave for 3 minutes. Let it sit for five or so minutes before spooning the cake onto a plate.
