Blue-Collar-Trash Chocolate Cake

Thanks to BigClive for this 4 minute recipe.



  • Mix the sugar, flour and cocoa in a microwavable cup.
  • Stir in the oil and the milk
  • Microwave for one and a half minutes.


I didn't have any self raising flour, only plain flour. I didn't have any backing powder either, but did have some bicarbonate of soda. To make bubbles, you need an alkali (the bicarb of soda) and an acid. I used lemon juice. It worked fine!
