I called Brian the other night and told him that I was going to teach him how to bake a cake for “Guy Food” and that it would be the fastest cake that he had ever made.  He also informed me that it would be the slowest he ever made because he has never baked a cake.  I think this recipe is perfect for guys and girls, young and old.  It is so easy, hits the spot and can be made in multiple flavors!

Guy Food: Chocolate Cake


  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 2-3 packets of splenda (or other low calorie sweetener)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 Tbsp of milk
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1 Tbsp of cocoa powder
  • ***Can take out the cocoa powder and add 1/8-1/4 tsp lemon extract and a drop of yellow food coloring for a lemon cake!
Step One:
Spray a microwave safe dish with cooking spray.  We used a coffee cup.
Step Two:
Combine all dry ingredients with a fork in the coffee cup.

Step Three:

Add in milk, oil, and extract (if using).

Step Four:

Microwave on high for 35 seconds.  It should still be moist and continue setting up for a few seconds.  If it is WET, microwave another 5 seconds.  Don’t overcook or it will get rubbery.

Serve warm with ice cream!

Enjoy 🙂


I can’t wait to experiment with using different flours and flavorings with this recipe.  I think it could be made into a little coffee cake for breakfast pretty easily, and topped with Greek yogurt.  I’ll let you know what I discover when I start experimenting with this one.
