Instant Gratification: I need the “only 4 ingredients” chocolate cake NOW!

Freshly and Loving Baked on : 28th Sept 2014



I titled this post instant gratification not because I am a magician and can bake a cake instantly. It is titled as such because this cake can be bake in under 45 minutes from preparation to finish and requires only 4 ingredients.

I am really tired after a few weeks of limited alone time to unwind properly. While I have a tedious bake concept in mind, I have decided not to overstretch myself. There are 2 ingredients in my pantry that is going to expire in the next 1 week ie chocolate chips and fresh milk. I have decided to clear these 2 ingredients to prevent wastage. That leads to this bake. It is an “anyhow think of ” of bake. The amazing thing is that it actually works. It is relatively low in fat since I used dark chocolate chips and low fat milk.

So here goes. For the dieters, it is perfect to satisfy that chocolatey cravings. The only downside to this cake is, it is rather sticky to the teeth. If you do not mind it, then lets get on with it!



1.5 Cups Low Fat Milk
1.5 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Cup Cake Flour
1.5 Cup Dark Chocolate Chip

Directions :

Heat up the milk to a boil before pouring it into the dark chocolate chips. Let it sit for a while before stirring it. Ensure that it is well mix before pouring it into a big glass bowl. Sift the flour and baking powder together. Add into the chocolate batter the floour mixture batch by batch. Ensure that the flour is very well incorporated with no lumps.

Grease the cake pans. Spoon the batter in and baked it in a preheated oven of 170 degree for 26 to 28 minutes. De pan and let it cool completely once done. šŸ˜‰
