Most Dangerous Chocolate Cake Recipe in the WorldI wrote back to Dani, told her she was evil and then confessed I'd been making a variation of this recipe since I was a teenager, except I called them 'gooeys.' I'd use little ramekins, take the recipe for brownies or chocolate chip cookies, use minute amounts of each ingredient (but add extra chocolate chips) and nuke them in the microwave for 30 seconds or so, until it had risen a bit, but was still molten and gooey on the inside. Hence the name 'gooey.'
MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
> 1 Coffee Mug
> 4 tablespoons flour(that's plain flour, not self-rising)
> 4 tablespoons sugar
> 2 tablespoons baking cocoa
> 1 egg
> 3 tablespoons milk
> 3 tablespoons oil
> 3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
> Small splash of vanilla
Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (if using)
and vanilla, and mix again. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for
3 minutes at 1000 watts. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but
don't be alarmed! Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if
desired. EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to share!)
And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world? Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!
When I make chocolate chip cookies and don't cook all the batter, I will put a spoonful on a plate and nuke it for 30 seconds and get an instant cookie without the temptation of an entire dozen. So see? Gooeys are good for you!
I made the Coffee Mug Cake recipe this weekend, btw. I added extra chips, of course...and stretched it out over three days because the recipe really does make enough to either share or savor over a short period of time. My gooeys are more of a one shot affair. Either way, though, you'll get a chocolate treat.
