IMSA Recipe: 5-minute Chocolate Cake
Have you ever opened your fridge only to find stale home-made food or a mushy pre-packaged bakery item, that, after a long day of intense schoolwork coupled with dissatisfactory food, you just don’t feel like eating? Do you ever crave the smell of freshly baked cake? With this recipe for chocolate cake, you can enjoy freshly baked goodies for a late night snack or after a grueling test. Best part? Prep time: 5 minutes.
4 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons of oil
3 tablespoons of milk
2 tablespoons of cocoa powder (sweetened or unsweetened)
4 tablespoons of sugar (optional)
1 egg (optional)
1. Crack open egg. Whisk egg with fork until consistency is even.
2. Combine flour, oil, milk, and cocoa powder in a mug. Add 2 tablespoons of whisked egg.
*Add 4 tablespoons of sugar only if cocoa is unsweetened.
3. Mix ingredients in mug with spoon until batter achieves thick, even consistency.
4. Put mug in microwave. Heat for 1 minute to 1 minute 15 seconds. Be sure to stay by the microwave while the cake bakes. It is easy to burn, and considering the sensitivity of IMSA fire alarms, an accident is not desirable.
Some of these ingredients are not common dorm items. Ask an RC if they have an item that you need for the recipe. Several RCs bake and cook, so the materials should be obtainable.
Once you are done baking the cake, dig in and enjoy your quick, scrumptious snack.
