I discovered this recipe on one of those unsourced Pinterest internet hint meme things. It’s super easy and just the thing to satisfy a Chocolate craving without baking a whole cake.
I shared the recipe last week in the My Poppet newsletter, and have had so many lovely thank you emails, that sharing it on the blog was the least I could do.
Make some for the kids as an afternoon surprise, ice cream is optional but makes this treat extra special.
Hardly any washing up – You’re welcome!
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 1/4 cup SR flour
- 2 tbsp cocoa
- pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 4 tbsp water
- Combine all the dry ingredients in a mug, add oil and water and mix well till combined. If it's too dry add a little extra water.
- Microwave for 1 min 40 sec
- Bing! All done. Careful it's hot.
- Cake has a slightly dry consistency so feel free to add liberal amounts of ice cream and chocolate topping whilst still warm.
Sugar levels can be adjusted to taste.
Tastes delicious served warm with a scoop of ice cream on top.
