Foolproof microwave cake: coffee flavored edition

I make this microwave cake a lot because it’s so quick and easy and tasty. It doesn’t require precise measurements or anything. I used to just make chocolate ones and molten chocolate ones, but nowadays I make a coffee flavored one, which is super good.


3 heaped spoons of flour + a little extra if you want more

a little less than a flat spoon of instant coffee powder (I think that’s what it is)

1 small spoon of brown sugar

a little less than half a spoon of baking powder

1 spoon oil

3-4 spoons milk + more if needed to get to a pasty consistency

Mix the dry stuff in a small glass container. Add the wet stuff and mix. Microwave for 50 seconds. Check if it’s done and eat it.

Notes: This is a fluffy, but not that fluffy, kind of dry-ish (reminds me of those Asian cakes), but pretty good. To make it more moist, see the ‘more options’ part.

More options:

–  put less baking soda to make it gummier and eat it with milk

– put a little less than a spoon more oil to make it more moist and delicious (reduce other liquid) <– this is really good

– put more sugar if you want it more sweet (duh)

– add some cinnamon for extra dimension

– top it with some chocolate sauce (milk + cocoa + sugar)

Next time, I’ll take pictures along the way and have a great finishing shot so that I can be super duper cool and become super duper famous-like because of my awesome totally legit recipe dawg. And then I’ll become known as the girl who invented everything and is so smart and genius because I am. (I’m just stalling doing my homework, okay??) La la la. ok bye

    Ayy, where da picture at? I’m assuming you must have talked about the lack of picture in the blog post but I didn’t bother reading the blog post yet. Perhaps, I will read it after I post this comment which might negate the purpose of this post. Who knows.
