I don't even remember how I came upon this recipe. Seeing it, I thought it was a must-try! Since we we don't bake much and hence, wouldn't have any baked goods lying around the house, I thought this might be a quick fix during those "I really want a chocolate brownie/cake" moments.
Flour, sugar and cocoa powder go into a cup. An egg follows, followed by some oil (or butter, I suppose). Vanilla extract, if you roll that way. In the microwave for a couple of minutes and voilà!
Mine was a tad overcooked because I followed the 3-minute cooking time. I will have to microwave it for much less next time. It's not the best, but how can one argue with an instant chocolate craving fix?
