We live in a world where everyone wants everything instantly, be it money, fame, or food. No wonder fast food companies are in so much demand.

How about a 5-minute dessert – an Instant Chocolate Cake? Using only a microwave, whisk, bowl, and a few ingredients. Sounds AWESOME!

Before you jump off to the recipe, I would like to let you know that this cake’s texture is dense, but it is still very yummylicious! If you have chocolate cravings like I do (sometimes in the middle of the night), this recipe is perfect for you. Also, it is so simple to make that your kids can make it on their own as well under your supervision.
