I was skimming along when I saw the recipe for a microwaved chocolate cake earlier and though it looked wonderful I had a few questions about how it turned out. Turns ou many other people had the same questions as me. so from what I gathered (please don't hate me I am just saying
) it is very high calorie and tough. So I wondered if I could come up with a solution.
I didn't. Not really at least.
I can up with a recipe that had no oil, no dairy, and wasn't so tough, though!
It is Much smaller because I started my testing from half the original recipe, then only used half of the batter I made each time to try different times in the microwave.
Mix together in a small bowl:
1Tbs self rising flour
1/4ts dried egg whites
1/4ts baking Powder
Mix in a seperate bowl:
1/4ts lime juice
1Tbs soy milk (but I am sure regular milk would work fine)
-Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and barely mix it where there is still quite a bit of the dry mixture visible.
- Scrape batter into a paper cut.
-Microwvae on high for 30 seconds
This is the basic recipe I came up with but microwaves are... well, just not ovens.
This recipe is very nice for just a preoccupation than anything, good project for when one may be bored.
-the paper cup is important: larger, ceramic, cups make for a longer cooking time and tougher cake
- chocolate chips, cinnamon, or anyother extra would be wonderful with this recipe.
I found sugar free chocolate syrup is really good with the little cake.^^
- I am used to very little sugar so one may want to up the sugar some what just for an extra treat and flavor boost.
Thank you for reading!^^
