Schokoladenkuchen! And so much easier to make than to say!

My daughter wanted to be in the photo WITH the cake :)
A wonderful friend of mine regularly sends me great recipes via email and to my loss, I don't try many of them. But this one looked really easy and I thought hey, even if it's no good the kids will enjoy it. Lucky us, it turned out quite tasty! And we ALL had a blast making it! From 2 to 33 there was joy in the kitchen! It's called Instant Chocolate Cake on the Food Network and it takes about 5 minutes to make! I will say, it makes more than you'd think. In the future I would make 1 cake and we could all split it (2-3 servings.) Basically you mix up the batter in a mug and then nuke it for 2 minutes! Voila! Cake! You could easily add a little sauce; we added some Fleur de Sel Caramel sauce from Trader Joe's and holy smacks- tasty! Will it replaced the baked cake? No. But with kids, it is a great dessert! Here's some pictures of ours:
This is how it looked out of the microwave.
Once inverted (did I mention it's really freakin' hot out of the microwave? Beware steam burns!) it looked like this:
One had been sampled already ;)

And last but certainly not least, all doctored up and ready to go!
The hubby opted for powdered sugar but me of course, I went for the whipped cream!


  1. hey this looks like something even I would make...if either of us could actually EAT dessert anymore..lllloooovvvee the blog

  2. You could swap the sugar with Stevia or the like and it wouldn't be bad for you at all! SUPER easy.
