You know those occasions when cake is not something which would be nice, but something which you categorically need? NOW? And going out in the cold and the rain to the shop to buy cake at 10pm isn't an option? Yeah, that happens. And this is the solution: Five Minute Chocolate Cake which you can make in the microwave! I remember microwave cakes from my Uni days and they were never very good; always kind of rubbery and disappointing. This is completely different; it's gooey and chocolatey and quite simply perfect for those cravings.
Start by mixing 4tbsp Self-raising Flour, 5tbsp Caster Sugar and 3tbsp Cocoa Powder in a bowl. Add 3tbsp Milk, 3tbsp Oil or melted butter, and 1tsp Almond Flavouring (you could also use Vanilla!) and mix well. Beat in one medium egg, and sprinkle in a handful of mini marshmallows and a few chunks of chocolate. Cover with clingfilm and microwave on full for one minute. Leave for a few seconds, then heat again on full for fifty seconds. Remove the cling film, add a scoop of ice-cream, and inhale!
It's seriously perfect and so quick to make - you could also split the mixture into two mugs before microwaving if you were in the mood to share! Do you like microwave cakes? Do you have a go-to recipe when you have a mega cake craving?
