The other night I had a chocolate cake craving which never happens, but this craving was too strong to ignore. I had just received my new Food Network Magazine, and figured it was fate. Inside I saw the recipe of my dreams! Along with a bunch of others goodies, there was a recipe for instant chocolate cake. I had all of the ingredients and it took me 5 minutes to make. Believe me, when the craving hits this will be your go to recipe!
¼ cup flour
5 tablespoons sugar (or about 6 packets of Splenda)
2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
3 tablespoons milk (any will do)
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
Dash of vanilla extract
Dash of salt
Fat Free Whipped Cream (optional)
Whisk flour, sugar, cocoa powder, egg, milk, vegetable oil, vanilla extract and salt in a large mug until smooth. Microwave until puffed, about 2 minutes (all microwaves are different, and if you like it more wet then remove earlier). Remove from microwave and top with more cocoa powder. Add cinnamon and/or whipped cream if you would like.
