I Minute Cake Recipe

I found a 1 minute cake recipe. Wow... never thought of that huh! Well, I think I will make the cake before I cook my Chicken Korma. It sounds like fun.

Serving: 1

2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons cocoa powder
1 pinch salt
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon oil


Mix all dry ingredients. Add milk, vanilla extract and oil and until well blended. Spray a microwave-safe cup with cooking spray. Pour the batter into the cup.

Microwave at full power for 1 minute. Depending upon the strength of your microwave and shape of your cup or container, you may need to cook the cake longer in 15 second increments until done.

As long as you don't overcook it, it won't turn rubbery. Since it contains no eggs, you don't have to worry about salmonella with the short cooking time. Also, the cake will puff up so don't fill a very small container. It needs some room to rise.

It's not a fancy cake but when you eat it warm with whipped cream, ice cream or a chocolate glaze, it tastes pretty good.

You can change the flavor of the cake by adding drops of various extracts: almond, mint, etc.

Hi Beatrice, I came across this recipe through LinkReferral and I tried it. It's fabulous! I doubled the recipe in case I wanted to share with my husband (I did share:). Also, melted some chocolate fudge frosting (store-bought) and poured over the top. Well, I'm speechless. It was the perfect remedy to the "I wish I had some chocolate blues" Thank you!

Ya... I tried it too and I added some almond chips and it was wonderful. Thank you for trying it out too. Sometimes we can make delicious food within minutes and it would put a smile on our face the whole day.
