Lazy chocolate cake

Sidra asked for keeki (cake) for breakfast this morning. I didn’t have an oven nor any cake ingredients, so I whipped this one from things already in the kitchen. With a microwave, it only took five minutes from preparation to serving, perfect for a hungry, demanding kindergarten kid.


  • 4 tbs pancake mix flour
  • 2 tbs milk cocoa powder
  • 2 tbs sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbs oil
  • 3 tbs water/milk
  • 2 chocochips cookies, crumbled
  • raisins


  • Mix pancake mix flour, milk cocoa powder, and sugar in a microwave-safe container
  • Pour in egg, oil, water/milk, blend together
  • Add chocochips cookies crumbles and raisins
  • Cover and cook in microwave in high power for approximately 3 minutes, or until cake springs back when touched
  • Serve to hungry kid
I’ve made another batch using banana instead of raisins, and Sidra loves it too. And now I’m eating a piece of this cake with a scoop of madamia ice cream. Yummy!
