Two Minute Chocolate Chip Cake

You are gonna either love me to pieces or hate me for this . . . let's face it . . . after today your life will never be the same again.

From this moment on you will never be more than two minutes away from a scrummy, delicous, buttery cake, chock full of lucious chocolate chips.

That's right. Two minutes, or one and a half depending on the strength of your microwave oven.

I know . . . it's a sin isn't it??? (You will need a big mug for this. )

Oh to think that something so beautifully scrummy can be yours as quick as a wink!! It's downright dangerous. But what a way to go!

Put on your fluffy slippers, slip into your robe and get ready for the scrummiest two minute wait of the day! Your world has now changed. You can thank me tomorrow.

*Two Minute Chocolate Chip Cake*
Makes one serving

Chocolate Chip Cake. Two minutes. 'Nuff said!

1 large free range egg
3 packed TBS of soft light brown sugar
5 1/2 TBS plain flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 TBS softened butter
3 to 4 TBS good quality chocolate, chopped coarsely
(I like to use Green and Black's Organic milk)
1/4 tsp vanilla

Mix all ingredients together in a large mug. Place in the microwave. Cook on high for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, or just until the top centre of the cake is set. Allow to cool slightly. Serve warm with clotted cream, Creme Fraiche or ice cream. Enjoy!

Note: You can make as many servings of this as you want, but cook each one individually.

I could not resist. I ate the whole thing. Myself . . . the eating did take a bit longer than two minutes as I wanted to savour every . . . single . . . bite. Sigh . . . What can I say. I am a bad puddy tat! =^..^=

I'm cooking Perfect Corn with a Basil Lime Butter over in The Cottage today.


  1. Marie I think I'm in big trouble,, Garry read this to me tonight and I'm telling you I could kiss you!! This is so good and I'm so trying this!!!It will not be good for my hips but I need comfort right now and wow, wow wow, this is heaven in a cup!Did you invent this,, you probably did,, you're so very clever!

  2. I don't have a microwave - woe - could I cook them for 10-15 mins in my regular oven do you think?

  3. I'm microwaveless also, can we make this little treat in a small oven? Would you change anything?

  4. Imagine that! One day I will try it:)I know you are not surprised:)

  8. Laurie sent me here. I am copying the recipe to take to my grandkids age seven this Friday to make at their house with them helping of course! How good it looks!!!

  9. I've come from Laurie's blog! :)
    What a fun little cake to bake. And you just had to take photos of it disappearing into your mouth just to torture us, didn't you! lol!

  10. Oh, Marie. This is just terrible. I am copying the cake recipe now. Bad idea.

  11. Now that I have written it down, I am inspired.
    Sub in blueberries for the choc chips for Mister.
    Or cinnamon and spices, maybe chopped pecans for a coffee cake.
    Goodness. I'm going to be busy. Everyone can have their own dessert!

  12. Mary and Belinda, I wouldn't cook it in a regular oven, although it probably would work and would be fine. If you want a tasty chocolate chip cake recipe try this one out!

  13. I adore these 2 min cakes..I had posted a chocolate 2 min cake but this vanilla with choco chip bits in between sound and look even better!!!
