This is really cool. I'm going to try it! Check your ingredient list - I think you meant to put 2 TBSP cocoa, instead of salt?
Hi Eric, I tried this recipe minutes after seeing it. Forgot the cocoapowder because of the salt mistake but it was good anyway. I switched half the oil for melted butter as in Holland using oil in baking is quite strange.
I have thought of a couple variations that I will try this Easter as well.
Substitute espresso coffeepowder for half of the cocoa for a coffecake and for a grownup version substitute rum or orange liqueur for half of the milk.
Have a nice Easter, Katja
Totally amazing!!!! makes me hungry just watching
Hi Eric, I tried this cake. It turned out great. I especially liked making it in a Pyrex measuring cup so I could watch the magic. Really fun. I think next time I might add some Peanut butter chips as well. Goes great with a glass of cold milk. For those with kids, this is a must try. Thanks Eric. Best, Steven
I am going to print this out and stick it right on the front of the microwave!
Oh, I did want to say one thing: Try to break yourself of the habit of banging the spoon on the edge of the measuring cup! It's really unsafe to bang on glass like that - you could knock a chip of glass into the container and end up swallowing it. Probably not as likely with a Pyrex measuring cup (which is really really tough) but if you do it on regular mugs or (worst of all!) glass pitchers, it's just not safe. Safety Officer says so! 🙂
And one more thing: Throw the ball. Throw the ball. Throw the ball! Throw! The ball! Throw the ball throw the ball throw the ball!!! Throw! The! Ball! THROW THE BALL! 😀
Try the 3-2-1 cake.
One box of angel food cake mix
One box of any flavor regular cake mix that you like
Mix the two really well in a large zip bag.
To make a small cake:
3 TBS. of the mix in a coffee mug
2 TBS water, stir
1 minute in the microwave
This makes a lot of mix , and portioned is a nice gift to kids and the elderly.
We tried this last night and it was delicious. We made a double batch and poured it into 4 ramekins. Had to cook it 2 min & 30 sec with all four of them in the microwave.
I made the five minute cake for my kids and they loved it! I was so inspired that I made my own version of five minute carrot cake (it was disgusting)! Love the show!
What a trip!!! It was wonderful. I think next time I'll decrease the oil and bit and add some raspberries
My four kids (and husband) are going to have fun with this recipe. Thanks for sharing it!
We have made "breakfast in a mug" which the kids love, too. Put two beaten eggs into a lightly greased mug. Stir in a splash of milk, salt & pepper, onion/garlic (if you like), and half-a-handful of shredded cheese. Microwave for about 30-45 seconds, stir, and microwave another 30-45 seconds or until eggs are puffy and no longer runny.
