5 Minute Chocolate Lava Cake

The Original Recipe:
I ran out of chocolate candy!! I cannot live a day with out some type of chocolate crossing my lips. I did a quick search on what to make using cocoa powder, and this recipe came up. This is The-Most-Simple recipe you will ever make. It is so fast and easy! So much so, that I made it for myself for supper one night. Only 5 grams of fat! Nice!

5 Minute Chocolate Lava Cake

Ingredients


Cake

1/3 cup granulated sugar
 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
 1 teaspoon baking powder
 1/4 teaspoon salt
 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
 6 tablespoons milk
 1 teaspoon vanilla

 stir-in

2 tablespoons brown sugar
 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
 1 tablespoon cocoa
 3 tablespoons coffee, hot or cold

Directions

In a microwave-safe 2-cup measure, stir together a heaping 1/3 cup granulated sugar, 1/2 cup, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder.
 
Add 6 tablespoons (3 ounces) milk, and a teaspoon of vanilla. Stir till smooth.
 
In seperate bowl, Mix 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon cocoa, and 3 tablespoons hot or cold coffee.
 
Pour into the cup.
 
Gently swirl it in; don’t mix thoroughly. Cook in the microwave for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes, depending how powerful your microwave is. When done, it’ll look set on top, and kind of mushy around the edges. Turn the cake onto a plate. It’ll be layered with… well, let’s call it sauce. It’s actually semi-baked batter, but since there are no eggs in here, it’s fine. (it will be HOT! I just ate it right out of the bowl. Nothing fancy for me when it come to chocolate!)
