This will just be a Friday quickie, no profound thoughts, just a chocorgasm. I had to share this idea as I'm so excited about it. Once in a while you just run into something which is pure genius. I happened upon this recipe today at work (I just had a quick peak during a really boring meeting, I usually don't browse baking blogs at work, I promise!! but if I hear the word coalescence one more time today I will hurt myself or someone else very badly). For the rest of the day, all I could think about was to get home and try this out. I mean, this is just the most amazing thing. It's a chocolate cake, made in the microwave in two minutes, all from ingredients you have at home. Well, at least almost, as I don't usually keep chocolate at home for safety reasons. Apart from that, I still think whoever came up with this idea should get the culinary equivalent of the Nobel prize.
I picked up this recipe from a blog called Completely Delicious, and just did a few very minor tweaks. I absolutely love that blog, the recipes on there are amazing, and the pictures are very beautiful. I warmly suggest you go and have a browse! The pictures on there are much better than mine, I should have made the cake in a white mug, not one which was dark inside, as it doesn't do any justice to the beautiful cake.
And finally I'm done with my rant. I won't keep you from the actual recipe any longer. Oh and the original recipe says serves 1 or 2. Two, my ash... This is the perfect decadent treat for a single woman slouching on her sofa on a Friday night!
