Chocolate Cake in 5 minutes!..

Im not a Chocoholic, but I do crave for Chocolate Cakes.
May be because my mom bakes the best of chocolate cakes ever, since we were kids..
Whipping up the cake for myself(as here none relishes this, in my family) is something I refrain from doing..

But what if you can make them in a jiffy, in small portions, in a very comfortable way?
I found this in Arundathi’s place ; whom I have regarded as a practical baker ;) after her Beautiful Banana Bread in my place…and as she says about this one,“it definitely isn't something you want to serve for company. But, hey, its great for that chocolate fix”.

The original recipe is adapted from Daisy Dee, which turned out to be a 'Mega Hit' in hers.

Grab

4 tbsps All-Purpose Flour
4 tbsps Sugar
2 tbsps Cocoa
1 Egg
3 tbsps Milk
3 tbsps Oil
1 Mug

And now..

Mix flour, sugar and cocoa in a mug. Spoon in 1 egg. Add the milk and oil and mix well.
Microwave on high for 3 minutes. It begins to rise and then settle down in the mug.
Remove the cake from the mug onto a plate and enjoy!.

Note- I divided the batter into 2 ramekins and I needed not more than 2 minutes to get them cooked in 900W(micro full power, as in mine) and this method is more promising than using a Mug where the cake may not be cooked evenly, if careless..


As at least a few of you might have experienced; getting back to blogging after a while needs a lots of “pushing ourselves”…sometimes a fuel from a true friend getting you do so…
Swapna, this post is for you, for the high concern and energy level in you had made me do this :) !!..
