Easy Cocoa Snack Cake Recipe

If you are like me then you probably get cravings for chocolate cake at random odd moments and don't have time to do anything about it - or don't want to commit any large portion of your chocolate stash to a large cake that when there isn't a special occasion. While I know there are mug cake recipes running around out there, it isn't entirely the same thing for me and doesn't cure that craving in the same way.

So, if you are like me, then here is the cake recipe for you. It uses a minimal amount of ingredients, relies solely on cocoa powder for the cake itself and is equally delicious topped with whipped chocolate ganache (shown here) for a fancier effect or with a sprinkle of powdered sugar and served with a tall cold glass of milk. Incidentally, while I wasn't setting out to make any kind of substitute for this cake that used to be an indulgence when I was growing up, it tastes almost just like I remember that one tasting - only much, much better with a nicer texture. I kept mine in the fridge for a few days and just cut indulged in it cold as well as at room temperature and it was fantastic and chocolatey either way.

If you give it a try, please let me know. I'd love to hear what you think!

Mmm...looks like the perfect thing to fix chocolate cravings. I like that it only makes a small square cake. I'm the only chocolate lover in my house so a huge chocolate cake is quite daunting.

I'll have to try this. I'm getting burned out on all the highly complicated chocolate recipes I'm doing lately!
