This is a chocolate cake created just for you. It’s for those days when you have been super busy and running around Christmas shopping, or doing errands, or baking treats. It’s for those days when you have just had everything go wrong that you were sure would go right and then things went wrong that you didn’t even know could get messed up. One of those, “ugh, now this too,” days.
It’s created for you for when you need a little treat. Maybe it’s that you’re craving chocolate, or that you just sat through a long day of work, or maybe it’s that you have ticked a big thing off your to do list, and you want to give yourself a big “go me!”
Really though, who says you need any reason at all?
Because there is chocolate involved, and coffee involved, and sometimes you just need those things for no reason at all.
But here’s the best part about this recipe: it’s made especially for you because it is a single serving. In other words, there is only enough for you to eat. You don’t have to share it, you don’t have to split it, you can sit down and eat the whole thing, and have it completely to yourself.
And it gets better: not only can you sit down and have this single serving chocolate cake all to yourself, but you don’t even have to feel guilty about it! It’s not packed with sugar, it’s not made with refined flours and heaps of oil, and it’s not even really what you would consider bad for you in the scheme of all things cake.
In fact, if we’re talking cake and chocolate and healthy, in this recipe, you could put them all in the same sentence.
Have I convinced you yet that this is how to satisfy your chocolate needs? Because if I haven’t, I’ll let you in on a little secret: you can have this cake in less than 10 minutes. You don’t even have to turn on the oven if you don’t want to!
It only has 8 ingredients, plus a bit of coffee, and you can cook the whole thing in the microwave!
All those thoughts of chocolate desires stirring around in your head right now can be satisfied by adding all the ingredients to a bowl, pouring in a bit of this morning’s leftover coffee (shhh, don’t judge), and popping that beauty into the microwave.
Yes, this is chocolate + coffee + healthy + quick bake. Dreams really do come true.
