5 minute chocolate cake...

Hi Everyone!!! I’m Katrina from Muffin Top Vintage, Maria asked for guest posts and I thought I would volunteer :) Now I am a huge chocolate cake fan so when I stumbled across this recipe that meant you could make a chocolate cake in 5 minutes using a microwave, a few years back I have made it my mission to share it with many people as possible. Let's be honest, sharing is caring right?!

Stuff you'll need:

4 tablespoons of plain or self raising flour

4 tablespoons caster sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
4 squares of milk chocolate (any kind)
1 large mug
1 flat knife


Mix flour, sugar & cocoa in the mug

Add 1 egg mix well
Add milk & oil, mix well
Add 4 squares of chocolate to the middle, make sure it sinks & is covered by the mixture.
Put in microwave for 3 minutes on maximum power
Wait until it stops rising & sets in the mug
Using a flat knife make sure the middle is cooked, if not put back into the microwave for another 30 seconds. Repeat if necessary.
Once you are sure its cooked all the way through tip the contents out of mug on to saucer & enjoy with a good cup of tea :)

Ciao for now
Love Katrina x

This looks so good! I've never tried a microwave cake before but tempted to give it a go as I don't have an oven in my flat. x
