Fat Friday – Fresh Cake In A Microwave

26 Mar

As you know last weekend we went out of town to Philadelphia and NYC to visit the French Culinary Institute (blog post still to come).  Usually we make Fat Friday the weekend before it posts but because of the trip we really didn’t have time.  So we needed something quick for this week…

Fresh Cake In A Microwave is inspired by the youtube video “Making Fresh Diamonds In A Microwave” Dan and I may have to make a parody video.  Be on the look out for that!  For now we’ll just leave you with the original youtube video and the recipe.  
Like the “Fresh Diamonds In The Microwave” this cake is less than satisfying.  I would compare it to an inner city hospital cafeteria’s version of a chocolate souffle.  It is edible and quick but far from fine dining.

Fresh Cake In A Microwave

recipe from: Dizzy Dee

What you Need:

  • 4 Tablespoons cake flour
  • 4 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 Egg
  • 3 Tablespoons milk
  • 3 Tablespoons oil
  • 1 Mug
  • Pinch of powdered sugar

Put It All Together:

Mix flour, sugar and cocoa

Spoon in 1 egg

Pour in milk and oil, and mix well

Put in microwave for 3 minutes on maximum power (1000watt)

Wait until it stops rising and sets in the mug

Tip contents out of mug onto saucer

Dust with powdered sugar and enjoy!

Really at a loss as to what to do for Make Up Monday but I’m sure we’ll come up with something, so check back!
