On those busy nights when the family has multiple things going on or you simply just feel like a fresh baked cake but don't have the time to make one, give this recipe a try. This has to be the best simple little homemade dessert ever; it has all things that I love in cooking. I am all about quick and easy recipe ideas, especially ones that have chocolate in it.
1/4 C. - Flour
5 Tbs. - Sugar
2 Tbs. - Cocoa Powder
1 - Egg
3 Tbs. - Milk
3 Tbs. - Oil
1/4 Tsp. - Vanilla
Dash of Salt
Roughly will be enough batter for two smaller 6-8 oz. ramekins (just fill a little over ½ full)
In a small mixing bowl whip the ingredients together until smooth. Cook one at a time in the microwave for 2-minutes or until the cake is puffed up. Serve immediately with a scoop if ice-cream or a dollop of whipped topping, or as we did with just a sprinkle of powder sugar/cocoa powder mixture.
Another great idea to change this up would be to make mini black forest cakes, put half of the batter in the bottom and top with a small spoonful of cherry pie filling then top with the rest of the batter and cook.
