Make a Chocolate Cake in Five Minutes and Just One Bowl

You know what sucks about cake? Taking the time to make it, waiting for it to bake and cleaning all the dishes afterwards. But you know what's great? Cake. Cake is great. So what if you could make it and eliminate all those problems? You'd have this recipe.

The folks over at Serious Eats devised a delicious microwave cake you can make in a single bowl so you don't dirty too many dishes. Then you just microwave that bowl for five minutes and you have a fudge-filled chocolate cake. The ingredients go something like this:

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar, divided
  • 3/4 cup cocoa, divided
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 plus 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup warm water

Take a 1.5L shallow microwave safe dish, mix the dry ingredients, then add the wet ones, mix it all up and microwave for five minutes. When the time is up, you've got cake! For further instructions, check out the full post on Serious Eats.

    Full disclosure: Nobody said it was good cake. Speed or quality, pick one

      Blasphemy! All cake is good cake!

        The (thing you just said about) cake is a lie! Clearly you've never heard of fruit cake!

        I kid, I kid, taste is subject, all that fruit is way too overpowering for me though
