|Warning, chocolate pudding cake made too easy!
Yesterday was kind of crazy here. I had early pick ups from school and a parent teacher conference right after that. On top of all of that...it was raining so we were all locked inside together! The boys had their friend over from next door and treats were needed!
I made this chocolate cake in a cup a couple of months ago on a whim after seeing it around the web. The boys remembered it and asked for it yesterday. I had everything it takes and it comes together easily so I figured, why not???
This is definitely for people that like dense chocolate cake. It is a cross between chocolate cake and chocolate pudding. These are not pretty by any means. But, they are a great sweet treat that can be dressed up with a little whipped cream or ice cream! So, if you are stressed for time, don't want to spend a lot of time on dishes and need a quick chocolate treat...this is a great recipe to keep on hand!
Microwave Chocolate Cake In A Cup
4 TBSP all purpose flour (white rice flour works too!)
4 TBSP sugar
2 TBSP cocoa powder
1 egg (flax egg works too)
3 TBSP milk (almond works!)
3 TBSP oil
1 tsp vanilla (optional)
Combine the dry ingredients in a large mug. Then add the rest of the ingredients and mix very well. Cook for 3 minutes in the microwave. Watch it puff up like crazy. Allow to cool for a minute and then enjoy with whipped cream or ice cream!
(not a good picture, but I wanted to show you how it puffs up while cooking)
