Brace yourself! I've got a gooey, chocolate-y, delicious treat to share with you today. All you need is a few basic ingredients that I'm sure most of you already have in your pantry, a coffee mug, a microwave and about 60 seconds of patience while it cooks...
4 tablespoons of flour
4 tablespoons of sugar
3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tablespoons of skim milk- yep skim milk
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl and pour the batter into a normal-sized coffee mug.
Now, here is where it gets tricky... The consistency of the cake should be cakey AND gooey. To get this consistency, it will take anywhere from 50 seconds to 1 minute and 15 seconds. It all depends on your microwave! I made it in two different microwaves over the weekend. It cooked in 50 seconds in my parents microwave. It cooked in 60 seconds in my microwave. My advice is to start with 50 seconds, then check the consistency. If it is too gooey for your taste, then cook it another 10 seconds.
Also, be sure to have your spoon and a side of ice cream and/or whipped cream ready to go as soon as it's done! It continues to cook in the mug after it's done, so it tends to get dry as it sits. No good...
This is so tasty and is perfect if you want a quick, small dessert on a busy weeknight. Let me know if you make it!
