Five Minute Chocolate Cake in microwave


I have to admit, I don’t usually make cake recipes that use oil, because I always think I can taste the oil, which puts me off the cake.

However, this is a good, plain recipe perfect for when you need a hot, chocolate dessert in a hurry, which only requires staple ingredients from the pantry.

Not surprisingly, He Who Eats All of Our Leftovers likes this a lot.

1/2 Cup plain flour
1/2 Cup sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
1/4 Cup milk
1/4 Cup cooking oil
1 tspn vanilla extract

Sift the flour and cocoa into a bowl and stir in the sugar.

Whisk the egg, milk, vanilla and cooking oil together and stir in to the dry ingredients. Pour the mixture into four ramekins or microwave coffee cups and cook separately for three minutes on high. Serve hot with cream.
