Hubby is a HUGE dessert lover. Me, I like it too but wish I didn’t like it quite so much as it catches up with me…
Anyway sometimes, if I don’t have dessert made Hubby will say, how about one of those microwave cakes. They are so quick and easy that it’s impossible to say no if Hubby wants one-besides, it only takes five minutes from start to finish to make one.
I make these enough that I keep the recipe taped inside the door of the cupboard. They actually taste more like a brownie than a cake but either way they are good. I think they are a little too chocolaty but Hubby claims there is no such thing. He loves his with ice cream and whipped cream. I like mine with nuts.
I got the recipe long ago from Country Threads‘ Newsletter. The original recipe says to make it in a mug, I just use a blow we eat cereal in. The first time I used a mug and mine wasn’t big enough and it ran over so cereal bowl it is. Here’s the recipe.
Spray your bowl with cooking spray. Add:
4 T flour
4 T Sugar
Splash of vanilla
2 T Cocoa
3 T Vegetable Oil
3 T Milk
3 T chocolate chips
Stir this all up and microwave for 2 minutes. The original recipe said 3 minutes but my microwave works best with just two minutes.
I love having a quick and easy go to dessert. Often times this is Sunday supper when I’m feeling lazy.
