Did We Really Need 5 Minute Chocolate Cake??

I received an email this morning from one of my High School classmates and thought instantly that is would make for a fun post. I have to mention that this classmate is a guy. If that isn't cool enough, he just married for the first time at age 51!!! He is as happy as anyone I have ever known and I guess he decided now that he's married he can let his figure go! Just kidding, Randy. Anyway, here ya go-

5 Minute Chocolate Cake for One
4 tbsp. Flour
4 tbsp. Sugar
2 tbsp. Cocoa
1 Egg
3 tbsp. Milk
3 tbsp. Oil
2 tbsp. Choco Chips (opt.)
Small splash of Vanilla
1 Lg. Microwave safe Coffee Mug

Add dry ingredients to mug and mix well. Add egg and mix thoroughly.

Add milk and oil and mix again.

Place mug in microwave and cook on high for 3 minutes.

The cake will rise over edge of cup-don't be alarmed.


You can tip it out onto a plate if you like.

Eat and enjoy!

If you are feeling generous, you can share with a loved one.

My personal addition would be a little whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate sauce.

And I ask one more time...DID WE REALLY NEED THIS!!?? sigh.....


  1. Perhaps at the end of a really bad day and you were too tired to do any better?

  2. Did it TASTE any good?
    Was that really long enough to cook the cake to a nice texture?

    Cool guy friend!
    My husband would TOTALLY love this idea!
    Quick chocolate anything makes him happy!

  3. This is amazing! Is it really good?!? ☺ Diane
