Relaxation Nation: Quick Fix Chocolate Cake

Alright,  my friends.  If you’re like me, sometimes the best way to cure all ills is with chocolate.

So today, on a lazy, cold long weekend, I bring you something to get you a little bit of chocolate love when you need it:  Quick Fix Chocolate Cake.

It’s fast and easy, it’s pantry-friendly, it’s not good for you, and it’s full of chocolatey goodness.

And it’s an individual serving. JUST FOR YOU. Sounds perfect to me.

Quick Fix Chocolate Cake

*4 Tbsp flour
4 Tbsp sugar
*2 Tbsp cocoa
1 egg
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
3 Tbsp milk

Get a large, microwave-safe coffee mug. Put the flour, sugar and cocoa in the mug, and mix well. Add the egg, and mix well. Mix in the oil and the milk (if you want, you can use less oil and more milk, and it will still be fine). Mix with a fork until the batter is smooth. It will probably be a bit thinner than regular cake batter.

Put in the microwave and cook on high for 2-3 minutes. TA DAAH! Chocolate cake.

Top with whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup, if so desired.


*NUTELLA VARIATION: If you have the Nutella love, use self-rising flour instead of regular flour. Increase your cocoa to 3 Tbsp and add in 3 Tbsp Nutella.

You’re welcome.

  1. Did you notice that I didn’t whine or tantrum over the lack of Random Tuesday?

    Well. Not because I didn’t notice, but because I haven’t had time. 🙁 Don’t think you can pull a stunt like that two weeks in a row, missy!

    • @Tova —

      You are too good to me. Really.

      I will consider myself duly warned to be up early and posting promptly on Tuesday! Okay, so maybe not up early. And probably not prompt, either. But I’ll post. Unless I get distracted. Or something.

  2. Write Girl made this for me the other night and it was really good. Thanks for the recipe!
