Odette's Microwave Chocolate Cake
Not only is this quick but it is fat free! Takes about 15 minutes from mixing to baked! Ideal for a school cake sale - you can even make it on the morning if you forgot about it the night before! 1 cup flour 1 cup sugar (you can use brown or white) 3 eggs 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 cup milk 3 tablespoons cocoa powder 1 teaspoon of vanilla or almond essence - or mint - what ever you fancy! Put all ingredients into a food mixer and turn onto high until all are mixed. Put into a cake baker that can be used in a microwave - no need to grease if it is a pottery or microwave dish. Turn microwave to full power and bake for 8 minutes - it is done when the cake comes away from the sides of the dish. Cool for 5 minutes before turning out - decorate as you wish. This cake is moist and will keep for some days. It can also be used for a dessert - dribble with whisky or brandy and cover with cream - place berries on top - lovely!
