Ingredients/ Συστατικά
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 5 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • ½ tbsp cognac (this is for the adult version, you can omit this, if the cake is for children)
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • Dash of vanilla extract
  • Dash of salt
Instructions/ Εκτέλεση
  1. Take a big mug and throw everything in it.
  2. Whisk until they are all incorporated and put it in the microwave in high temperature for 2 minutes.
  3. You can start with two and then add 50 seconds if it is still runny.
  4. In the photos because we are three, I divided the mixture into three ramekins and microwaved each one of them for 50 seconds.
  5. So, we could all have a bite at the same time! Enjoy!
Note: A friend of mine tried the recipe without the baking powder and when he took it out of the microwave it deflated completely in a matter of nanoseconds lol. Please do not forget to add it because it will happen to you as well! Also the baking powder gives it a more ‘cakey’ texture rather than a sponge one without it!
