Chocolate Cake In 3 Minutes
I'm making this page about this great, quick, individual serving of cake, because it's a great recipe. My mom sent me the recipe in an e-mail, and I've since given it to my mother-in-law, and my sister-in-law. It's easy to do, and you don't have to just make it chocolate. You can personalize it anyway you want.
I make this recipe when I want a quick snack. I've made individual ones for desserts for my family. I just love it. It doesn't take long to do, and I've played around with it and added different ingredients. Every time I make it, it turns out great.
- Prep time: 2 min
- Cook time: 3 min
- Ready in: 5 min
- Yields: 1-2
- 1 Coffee Mug
- 4 Tablespoons Of Flour (not self-rising)
- 4 Tablespoons Of Sugar
- 2 Tablespoons Of Baking Cocoa
- 1 Egg
- 3 Tablespoons Of Oil
- 3 Tablespoons Of Milk
- 3 Tablespoons Of Chocolate Chips (optional)
- Small Splash Of Vanilla
- Spray mug with PAM...Add dry ingredients to mug and the chocolate chips (if using), and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add vanilla, and mix again. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes (1000 watt oven). The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed! Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired. EAT! You can serve two with this if you feel like sharing.
Is it great?
I think it's a great snack. I've made it for myself many times. It doesn't take long, and it's filling too. Little rough on the teeth though.
Does this seem like a great snack?

These all look like good cookbooks to me. I'm just judging the books by the cover.
Personalizations I've Used
I know this sounds crazy, but I don't really like chocolate. I've come up with other ways to make this cake that work for me.
I've used marshmallows instead of chocolate chips, I've left it just plain, so it's like a white cake, and I've used brown sugar instead of cocoa. My most recent substitution was strawberry Kool-Aid mix instead of chocolate. If you use this one though, you need to add a little more sugar. Every time, it came out great, and made the cake taste a little different. This photo shows you what it looks like once you dump it out of the mug. This is when I used brown sugar instead of cocoa.
Instead of using vanilla, I've also used Bailey's Irish Creme, and a liqueur called Amber Creme. That gives it a butterscotch type of flavor. If you use alcohol though, you have to add a little bit more flour. The alcohol counteracts the rising effect of the flour.
