Yes, you can make chocolate cake in 5 minutes in a cup! I tried it three times in a row and came up with this recipe. Simply put the ingredients in a cup, stir, top with a big dollop of nutella and pop in the microwave for around 90 seconds. Out comes an ACTUAL cake which you can eat straight from the cup or spoon in to a bowl with cream.
As long as you always have a few basic ingredients in the cupboard you can whip this up whenever you like! Awesome.
5 minute chocolate cake in a cup
35g plain flour
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp veg/sunflower oil
3 tbsp milk
1/3 tsp baking powder
Big dollop of nutella
Put everything apart from the nutella in a cup and stir it really well. Top with a big dollop of nutella and put in the microwave on full power for 90 seconds (you may want to experiment with your microwave and try 60 seconds and then 10 seconds until it is moist but set like a cake). Eat!

Oh dear (re the instant chocolate cake)….I havn’t got a microwave!!!!
This is your excuse to finally get one! You won’t look back : ) xx
You deserve a medal for this!!! Didn’t have Nutella so added a blob of peanut butter and a scoop of vanilla ice cream to serve. It’s unbelievably delicious. I ‘m going to blame you for making me fat!! X
Hehe thanks for feedback! Peanut butter – will have to try that! xx
