1 Minute Baileys Chocolate Cake

With St. Patty's Day right around the corner, I thought I'd make you a cake.

It is rich and dense with a noticeable taste of Irish cream, but still light and fluffy.

This cake only took about 5 minutes from start to finish.  And less than one minute to cook.

There are times when you need cake in a hurry.

Today seems like that kind of day.

1 Minute Baileys Chocolate Cake
Serves 1

1 tbsp + 1 tsp cocoa
3 tbsp flour
pinch salt
2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 Splenda packets (or use more sugar if you like)
1 tbsp oil (canola, vegetable or coconut)
3 tablespoons Baileys liqueur
1 tbsp milk (I used almond milk)
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Mix all this stuff together and pour it in a greased microwave safe ramekin or mug.  Microwave for 40-50 seconds.  Allow cake to cool for about 5 minutes, then run a sharp knife around the cake in the mug (or ramekin) and gently turn it upside down on a plate.  Top with whipped cream and grated chocolate.

Note: If you don't want to use the alcoholic Baileys, try subbing the Baileys coffee creamer instead.  Or just use almond milk (only 3 tbsp, though)~it makes an equally yummy cake ;)

Hi Renee,

What do the 2 splenda packets equal in terms of normal sugar please?

Many Thanks
