NOT TRIED YET BY ME< BUT LOOKED GOOD


The 5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE (most dangerous cake recipe in the world)

4 tablespoons cake flour (that's plain flour, not self-raising)
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
a small splash of vanilla essence
1 coffee mug

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well
Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla essence, and mix again.

Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts. The cake
will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!

Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.

EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).

And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world? Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!

I just made this and it is SOOOOOOO good! I even made a gluten free version. I just used a gluten free flour mix and added a pinch of xanthan gum in place of the flour. It's a really heavy cake and I weighed it on the scale, so we'll see how blood sugars go, my kids are eating the rest of mine :)

Brenda which version - can you tell us the exact ingredients you used? I'm so excited you made it gluten free :-)!!!!

I used the exact recipie in the thread except instead of flour I used 2 Tbsp White Rice Flour, 1 Tbsp Potato Starch, and 1 Tbsp Tapioca Starch and a pinch of xanthan gum.

I normally have a GF flour mix on hand but I was out, so I used a GF flour blend from a cookbook. Mine was a little off on the ratios, but it still worked great. Next time I might use guar gum instead of xanthan gum -- the guar gum is generally used more in GF cakes, xanthan gum is generally used in GF breads. I forgot I had guar gum :rolleyes:

Thanks Brenda, I passed that on to a friend who does a lot of outreach for people with celiac.

UPDATE: I made it with all purpose flour and it was a bit on the tough side.

ahh, this is what you were making the other night.

usually cake flour is just heavily sifted so if you need cake flour and only have all purpose you can just sift it a bunch of times and you should get the same results. :)

I'm envisioning this dumped on a saucer with ice cream and hot fudge.... no???
