Chocolate Cake In 5 Minutes!

Chocolate Cake In 5 Minutes!
So, Someone gave me a link to This Yesterday, and after reading the comments I decided to try this, but with modifications. I mixed together THROUGHLY: 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda 3 1/2 Tbsp. Flour 2 Tbsp. Cocoa Powder 4 Tbsp. and in a separate bowl, mixed 1 Egg white and half of the yolk. I added the wet ingredients to the dry, and stirred it up until all of it was moistened(no major clumps of dry ingredients-some small though. which is fine, because it bakes out.)According to the comments, over-mixing it will make a tough and rubbery cake. Looking online, I found a Chocolate Sauce Recipe, and I 1/4th’d it. 1/4 Cup Sugar(I used normal, white granulated sugar) 1/2 Tbsp. I mixed the dry ingredients VERY THROUGHLY first, then added the wet. I believe while the cake is nuking you could easily make the sauce in time, assuming you put the ingredients in the saucepan first. It was JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT of sauce for this cake!

Single Serving Pie in a Jar These are individual-sized pies made in little glass jars that can go straight from your freezer to your oven to your mouth. SO cute. You can make these with store-bought crust and canned filling or jazz it up with homemade like we do. Pie in Jar This is the type of jar you’ll need. They’re half-pint jars, but short and squatty instead of tall and skinny (Ya know, like me as opposed to my mother. Step 1: Pie Dough The first thing you’ll need is dough. Step 2: Make a topper and line the jar Roll out a small handful of dough. Use the rest of the dough to line the jars. Step 3: Fill ‘er up You’ll need about 1/2 C filling for each jar. Play around with it and come up with something yummy! When your filling is all combined, divide it between the jars and dot a pat of butter on top (about 1/4 T) Step 4: Top it off Make sure your “lid” has a vent so steam can escape. When your topper is ready, slip it onto the top of the pie. Another option is to do a crumb topping. Step 5: Freeze ‘em!

Cookie Dough Pie It’s a trick actually. There is no cookie dough in this pie at all. Just cookies made so they seem like cookie dough. Magical really. This pie could easily be named 1.2.3. My little niece, Mia ate this and said, “Hey did you put cookie dough in here?” Cookie Dough Pie 15.25 ounce package Chips Ahoy Cookies- Original kind8-12 ounces Cool Whip- I used 8 ounces2 cups milk* Quickly dip cookies in milk, shake off excess liquid, and layer in 9 inch pie plate, breaking cookies to fill any gaps. *Last night I used 1 C. strong coffee mixed with 1 C. milk for dipping instead of plain milk.

Homemade Potato Chips Recipe [donotprint]A few years ago a friend of mine taught me how to make potato chips in a microwave. I thought she was kidding because I couldn’t imagine a microwave producing crispy chips. After cooking them for 5 minutes they were done, crispy, and wonderful! Ideally, a mandoline works best to cut the potatoes paper thin. If you don’t have one you can use a vegetable peeler or slice the potato very thinly with a knife. Cooking one batch doesn’t yield that many chips, but its a great snack-sized amount for 1 person. Homemade Potato Chips Ingredients: 1 russet potato Non stick spray Parchment paper or glass plate Salt and Pepper Directions: Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the inside of your microwave. **WARNING** Some people have had their microwaves short cut, plates shatter, and potatoes go up in flames. **UPDATE** I’ve made several batches of this over the weekend.
