Empty Nester's Chocolate Cake


With it being just Regena and I here at the house, we really don’t need a big cake. Here is a recipe Regena received from a ladies list. I renamed it 'Empty Nester’s Chocolate Cake'.






5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE CAKE IN A MUG

1 Coffee Mug

4 TBSP Flour

4 TBSP Sugar

2 TBSP Baking Cocoa (or less cocoa)

Pinch Salt

1/8 tsp. Baking Powder

1 Egg

3 TBSP Milk

3 TBSP Oil

Small splash vanilla

Optional: 3 TBSP Choc. Chips or nuts



Mix dry ingredients in mug. Mix liquid ingredients in small
measuring cup 1st, then mix in mug with dry mixture, adding
choc. chips and/or nuts last. I didn’t grease the mug.

Put in microwave on high for 3 minutes. Mixture will
rise, but won’t spill usually. Allow to cool a bit. I slid
a knife around edges, then turn over onto a plate. It
can serve 2. Most dangerous chocolate cake recipe!—
5 minutes away for those needing a chocolate fix!!

This was pretty good - and easy - thanks!

We took a big cocoa mug and made the cake, let it cool, cut it in slices and made ice cream sandwiches out of them. Home made ice cream sandwiches in minutes - who can beat it?! Thanks!!!! :D
