A version of the original fast and easy one slice cake adapted in case you are out of cocoa powder...and I am including some changes you can make to make it lower in fat and calories and healthier and still have a great little cake! I just added the "optional" of adding sugar and a squirt of chocolate syrup because my son said it could have been a little sweeter and those add ins did the trick because he said it was very good and he is the chocolate lover in the family.

How to Make Fast and easy ONE SLICE cake II

Step-by-Step

  • 1Spray mug with nonstick spray for best results.
  • 2Measure out the flour, hot chocolate mix and salt into the mug. Stir.
  • 3Crack the egg into the mug. Stir a bit after adding the egg so the cup doesn't overflow.
  • 4Add water and oil. Stir until thoroughly moistened. Make sure to scrape the bottom of the mug with your spoon to avoid any leftover pockets of dry ingredients
  • 5Put the mug in the microwave on high and set the timer for 3 minutes
  • 6As it bakes, a cylinder of cake will start to rise out of the mug. But it goes back down afterwards.
  • 7Tip your cake cylinder out of the mug into a dish. Your cake may look a little damp and wrinkled. This is normal.
  • 8Slice in half.. . This will allow steam in the center to escape. Arrange so that the more attractive interior of the cake is showing.
  • 9To make a lighter healthier version of the cake just use whole wheat flour, canola oil and sugar-free, calcium fortified hot chocolate. You can replace half the oil with applesauce. Just as delicious!
  • 10You can add chocolate chips to the mix...they may settle to the bottom but it tastes great.
  • 11Serve with whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream,some marshmallow fluff, or just drizzle with some chocolate syrup.
