How many of you love those Warm Delights by Betty Crocker, but cant’t bring yourself to spend the money to spoil yourself on them? (Or you just get them when they are on sale/you have a coupon & you wish you could have them more often since molten warm goey chocolate cake is too good to not have whenever you want it)…. Ok – thanks, put your hands down!
This is the make at home, do it yourself, whatever, whenever, whoever, version of those ‘instant’ cakes and they are just TOO GOOD! You are now just 10 minutes from warm Chocolate Cake.
Wait, let me repeat that… “You are now just 10 minutes away from fresh warm Chocolate Cake.” Did it sink in that time?
10 Minutes: the time it takes to put on your makeup, the time time it takes to make a pot of coffee, [less than] the time it takes to make a pot of pasta, the time it takes to walk a mile, OR the time it takes to make a fresh, from scratch chocolate cake!!
Remember, just because you can have something this delicious in just 10 minutes [every day] doesn’t mean that you should (that is a reminder from me to both of our waistlines, feel free to check out Calorie Count as a reminder as to why you do not need this every day & that yes, it is still cake).
A photo of the e-mail print-out my mom gave me…
- 4 Tablespoons Flour
- 4 Tablespoons Sugar
- 2 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
- 1 egg
- 3 Tablespoons Milk
- 2 Tablespoons Applesauce
- 1 Tablespoon Oil
- splash of vanilla extract
- optional: 3 T chocolate chips
- 1 large mug
Nutella Version – I’ll have to try this one! AND – while we are making variations on this dangerous cake… why not try adding a tablespoon or two of PEANUT BUTTER to change the flavor, or some CARAMEL, or add different flavored chocolate chips!?
Have fun – but just don’t eat this too often (there: I said it again - now I can’t be blamed for any weight gain for this easy to make cake!)
Oh yeah – HAPPY 100th POST TO ME: in honor of my 100th post, I made myself my own personal chocolate celebration cake!! And I made a 2nd one to treat my man & favorite photographer: Mr. Rich Alborn, NJ Wedding Photo!
