Like any normal person, chocolate is one of those things that I could just nom on every day, in all shapes and form.
The other day, I got a fierce craving for chocolate cake. So, while I was at the grocery store, I picked up some Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Cake Mix. I like Duncan Hines because the mix itself is vegan, and it's still pretty cheap and delicious. This cake mix sat in my cabinet for a while, waiting for me to have enough time to bake cake.
Here's the thing. I'm a college student. I'm an actor. And I have a job. And did I mention homework? Baking a cake is way down on the priorities list- and I mean WAY DOWN.
But today, I invented something marvelous. Meet:
The Most Amazing Microwave Cake Ever.
3 tbsp Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Cake Mix, or pretty much any Duncan Hines Cake
1 tbsp water
1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
For the Frosting (optional):
2 tbsp confectioner's sugar
1/4 tsp water
1/4 tsp vanilla
For the cake: combine all ingredients in a small, microwave bowl (ramekins work well) and mix until moistened.
Microwave on HIGH for 45 seconds, or until a fork comes out clean. For the frosting: combine all ingredients together. Add another tsp water if mixture is too thick. Frost the cake, and dive in!!
Alternatively, you can just sprinkle with powdered sugar.
