Chocolate cake inna mug inna microwave!



Today I read about someone who made a chocolate cake, using a mug, a microwave, and 3 minutes. Intrigued, I memorized what I needed, and stopped by the store on the way home to pick up some eggs.

The basic recipe as I read it was:
4 Tbs flour
9 Tbs Hot Chocolate Mix
3 Tbs Oil (Not sure about this one)
3 Tbs Water
Cooking Oil
1 egg
Mug


I altered the recipe a little bit, because I read some comments that the other recipe was "rubbery". Here is how I made it:

1 Packet Nestle Hot Chocolate
~4 Tbs Whole Wheat Flour (don't have any regular flour)
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 medium egg
1 1/2 Tbs Vegetable Oil
1 Tbs Milk
1 Tbs Water
Couple Chocolate Chips

Actually I thought it looked too wet. I couldn't find a large enough mug (mostly I have tea cups) so I just used a small bowl. I nuked it for 3 mins on high. It didn't "rise" a whole lot.
I turned it out onto a plate and tried it. It has the consistency more of pudding.. sort of cake like pudding. Actually I really quite liked it! I wouldn't say it's the best cake I've had.. but as far as chocolate "desert" goes, it wasn't too bad at all!

Loui even liked it.

This was the bowl.. it didn't stick at all, just plopped out onto the plate:
