OK, so here’s the scoop. About 15 minutes ago my mother-in-law emailed my son a recipe for “Instant Chocolate Cake” made in the microwave of all things! So naturally, after he made his and it got the thumbs up, I de-glutened and de-dairied the recipe. (I am aware that those aren’t real words by the way.) Although you wouldn’t serve this to guests for dessert, it’s tasty enough that I think it could be very dangerous for the waistline! From start to finish you have a cereal bowl sized chocolate snack cake in less than five minutes. A quick and easy way to satisfy that sweet tooth every now and then. Next time I’m going to alter the recipe a bit to see if I can get it more “chocolately”. Maybe by adding dairy-free chocolate chips or increasing the cocoa powder and almond milk a bit.
2 Minute GF & DF Chocolate Cake
In a microwave safe cereal bowl, add: 1/4 cup Mama’s Almond Flour Blend, 1/4 cup sugar, 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder, 1/8 tsp. salt, 1/8 tsp. xanthan gum, 1 egg, 3 Tbs. almond milk, 3 Tbs. vegetable oil, 1/2 tsp. vanilla.
Stir with fork until all ingredients are combined and smooth.
Place in the microwave and cook on high for 1 minute 40 seconds to 2 minutes. DO NOT over cook or the cake will be rubbery and dry.
