The Girl Who Thinks She’s a Bird made this the other night. Whoever thought to do this is freakin awesome. Where was this idea when I was growing up or before I had kids? There were so many times when this cake would have really come in handy. Even now, it will keep me from inhaling an entire chocolate cake.
Seriously though, tell me this isn’t the perfect college kid recipe! You don’t need large quantities of ingredients and every college kid has a microwave, right? I suspect this won’t be the last time The Girl makes this.
3 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons olive oil
A pinch of salt
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
Powdered sugar to dust on top
In a coffee mug or custard dish, mix all dry ingredients together. Then add wet ingredients and stir until combined. Microwave on high for 1 min 45 seconds, sprinkle with powdered sugar and BAM. Dessert is served!
