Time for Something Sweet

Every now and then you just want something sweet. Tonight I wanted cake – but obviously, not an entire cake. So what did I do? I fiddled around with the one pan fudge cake recipe I posted here to make something more like one serving and microwaved it.

The result?

It's cake!

Cake! (I know you want the recipe, so here it is.)

Microwaved Bowl ‘o Cake

  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking cocoa
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • dash salt
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1/8 tsp vinegar

Put all ingredients in microwave safe bowl, stir. Microwave on high for 45 seconds to 1 minute 30 seconds until only small wet patches remain on the surface. (Microwave ovens vary, and so will the time it takes to cook it!)

In almost no time at all you have a nice, warm bowl of chocolate cake! You can eat it plain (it has a very nice cakey texture, not microwave rubber) or top with frosting, chocolate sauce, or do what I do – slice a banana over it and eat it with ice cream. Yum!

    This is dangerous! Very dangerous! I think the seven pounds I’ve got to lose to get down to pre-Moochie size is literally from being home and eating all day.

    And this cake isn’t helping my willpower!! YUM!

    I totally have to try this recipe. I’m sure my girls will love it. I’m not going to be losing my baby fat from baby number 3 anytime soon.

    This is S-O-O-O good! I substituted 1 Tbsp of Splenda for 1 of the Tbsps of sugar, and it was great! Just right when you want a quick chocolate pick-me-up :)
