Easy bake emergency chocolate cake
While it was a great emergency chocolate fix neither of us thought that the texture was quite right. So I monkeyed around with the original recipe and came up with an easy baked version.
My inspiration was from Steamy Kitchen's 10 minute shrimp curry recipe. Even tho I wasn't making this fabulous dish with shrimp nor did it take 10 minutes, it did leave me with about half a can of coconut milk...which would be perfect for...
OFG's Easy Bake Emergency Chocolate Cake
Preheat oven to 350* and then find and grease the smallest cake pan you have - this worked perfectly in a 6" pan
Melt in a medium sized, microwave safe bowl:
6 Tbls of butter
Then mix into the butter:
8 Tbls flour
4 Tbls sugar
4 Tbls cocoa
It won't all mix in but at least you won't cook your eggs with the hot butter, so now add:
1 large egg (or two very small pullet eggs)
4 Tbls coconut milk
A big splash of vanilla
A big handful of chocolate chips
Pour into your prepared baking pan and bake for about 20 minutes at 350* or until it starts to crack a bit on top. The texture is pretty fudgy so it's kinda more brownie-like. And its best served warm with a huge scoop of ice cream. Or for breakfast.
Now go and put on your favorite snuggle socks, put your feet up by the fire, and have yourself some chocolate cake!
