Friday Follow and Chocolate Cake!

Today is Friday Follow.  It's always exciting to see the list of followers grow. (Hopefully!)

I apologize for the lack of blogs this week, but I have had trouble getting online.  I don't know if there is a correlation between the amount of snow we have and the ability to get online, but that's what it seems like.
Plus, our ridiculously long driveway that I thought was too long to shovel??? It turns out that it's NOT too long to shovel.  That's what I've been doing for the past three days.  There are actually a few places where I can actually see the blacktop!  It's been quite a job, but slowly and surely, it's getting done. Now, as the snow is starting to melt and turning to slush, I need to get that off before it freezes and turns to ice!  Oh the joys of winter wonderland!

I've decided to share a recipe for today.  I call it the Mile High Cake, but it can also be called the Most Dangerous Cake in the World. You may wonder what would make this the most dangerous cake in the world. Two reasons: 1) All the ingredients are common, every day ingredients. and 2) It only takes five, that's 5, minutes to make, from start to eating! Want to try it?
           4 tablespoons cake flour or
                   all-purpose flour   (no self-rising)            
            4 tablespoons sugar
            2 tablespoons baking cocoa
            1 egg
            3 tablespoons milk
            3 tablespoons oil (I use coconut oil, melted)
            3 tablespoons chocolate chips (I use minis)
            Dash vanilla flavoring          
           1/4 teaspoon instant coffee (optional)
           1 microwaveable coffee mug

          Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. (I use a small bowl, just because it's a little easier to stir everything.)  Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips, vanilla flavoring, and coffee, and mix again.

         Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed! Allow to cool a little. (I don't.) Tip out, and put on a plate, if desired. Eat up! It's also good with a nice scoop of vanilla (or whatever you like) ice cream.  This will serve two, if you feel like sharing!


  1. Chocolate Cake looks yummy. Thanks for the recipe and the ingredients. Friday Followers are back again!

  2. Oh, no. I'm definitely in trouble. I'll have to try this one soon.
