The Quickest Chocolate Cake in History

It’s been a while since my last post, but that’s only because I was up to my ears in an office project.

2

It was a Show and Tell/Open House for our department.

2

Other teams came to look at the kind of work we do, and we had a ton of fun in store for them!

2

Side note: Have I ever told you about my job?

I edit books. REALLY fun books.

Books like these 🙂

2

2

We had some super fun activities planned for everyone, based around the theme of our books.

2

The Gardening section, had tiny (and very cute!) saplings that people could take home and grow.

2

2

More plants to encourage people to go green!

2

2

We also had a craft section in which everyone could make their own photo frames using some wonderful (and unusual!) items.

2

2

We set up a photo booth, with a vintage car cut out and some crazy props!
I like me in red hair 🙂

2

2

And then there was the food and drink section. What fun 🙂

2

2

We had a “Decorate your cupcake” stall that was very popular!

2

2

A Masterchef guess-the-ingredient-stall.

2

And a path breaking “Quickest-chocolate-cake-in-history-stall, manned by these two cuties!

This cake is perfect for those insane cravings that come out of nowhere.

2

All you need are some basic ingredients at hand, and you can have chocolate cake in 50 seconds! Yes. You heard that right.

2

Recipes for this marvelous cake have been doing the rounds on the internet, but after several (failed!) experiments, we discovered the perfect ingredient ratio.

2

This is a very basic recipe. Feel free to add some chocolate chips, dark chocolate pieces, or even liquor chocolate (yum!) in the mug! I’ve tried all these and they work really well.

2

The cake starts to harden a bit when it hits room temperature, so eat it warm. If you like your cake a bit gooey, then up the liquid content very slightly.
