Couple of months back I came across a recipe for this One-Slice Chocolate Cake in the Good Housekeeping magazine.I was intrigued and set out to try it. Fortunately I had all the ingredients in my pantry. Well, after it was done and after I had eaten it I was simply in chocolate heaven.
This recipe is perfect for one person or even two of them. So why was I so happy???You see my husband hates anything and everything chocolate and my kids are not big fans of cake either. So if I bake a regular cake or even buy from some store, it usually means I end up eating the whole thing. This recipe is a perfect solution to my problem and my craving ( and no I am not pregnant).
I know it has nothing to do with the project, except that I had a craving for that cake today. So I decided make it and share that recipe here. ENJOY.
2 tbsp flour
3 thsp sugar
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
1 large egg
2 tbsp milk
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp chocolate chips
small splash of vanilla extract
Add all dry ingredients into a mug (or a microwavable bowl) and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add in the chocolate chips and vanilla extract and mix again. Put the mug in the microwave and cook on high for 2 mins. The cake may rise over the top, but don’t be alarmed. Allow to cool and tip out onto a plate if desired. Eat or serve it with a dollop of whipped cream.
My thoughts about this recipe: It is a great recipe. It works really well. The texture however is not as soft as you would expect a cake to be….it is more like a brownie…..but what the heck…..I love it…..
