This is a recipe I’ve been wanted to blog about for a while now. There was some talk about chocolate and cake on Twitter, so this was finally the push I needed. (I also think we’ll be having it for dessert tonight!)

Yes, you did read that right FIVE MINUTE CAKE. I found this recipe on instructables.com and doctored it up a bit. Make it your own by adding some nuts, berries, crushed candy bar, marshmallows etc. I made this as a quick birthday cake for my husband Dave, but don’t add the candle right away because it will melt into it. (I wasn’t lazy, we just had a lot to eat that weekend and he chose this recipe!)
