| Thanks to our cousin Buffi
Basso for this special Lenten "low calorie" chocolate cake receipt.
The cake can be prepared in about six minutes; it is "baked" in a microwave oven. The suggested serving shown here is one half the cake sliced lengthwise; but the next time we will be slicing it into four cylindrical disks. It is quite rich.
The cake reminded us of "Crosse & Blackwell®" brand canned chocolate cake we used to purchase in the 1950's, only richer. This was also available as a date and nut loaf.
Don't believe that line above about "low calorie"; this is a rich pudding type cake.
1 large coffee mug (see Note)
4 Tablespoons flour
| We used a soup cup
as shown here. It holds approximately 1 3/4 cups or 400 mL filled right
to the brim; so make sure your "coffee mug" is large enough.
Possibly a 2 cup (450 mL) Pyrex® measuring cup could be used.
