5 Minute Chocolate Cake

Pinterest is the devil and I've been addicted the last week or so. I ran across this recipe for 5 minute chocolate cake, baked in a coffee mug. I just had to share this since this is just way to awesome of an idea not to. Here is the recipe, but head HERE to see where it was originally posted. You can also go HERE to see another really cute blog post about this recipe.

5 Minute Cake
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp espresso powder
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp cocoa
  • 3 tbsp nutella
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • Pinch salt
  1. In a mug ( I use a 300 ml coffee mug), break the egg and whisk a little with a fork.
  2. Add milk, oil and mix together.
  3. Mix in the nutella well.
  4. Add sugar, cocoa, salt and espresso powder. Mix well.
  5. Fold in the flour with fork. Mix well but be careful as to not over mix else you will get a rubbery, tough texture.
  6. Microwave for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes on high. You will have to figure out how long you want to microwave. For me the cake is done after 2 min 45 sec.
  7. Let cool a bit and dig in.
