Chocolate Sticky Cake

Raise your hand if you have a relationship with chocolate!

I do. I love chocolate. It rewards me through taste, but hangs around in the most inconvenient places. :-)

I also love to bake. When I need a quick chocolate fix without a ton of work, and a recipe that doesn't make oodles and oodles of cake, I refer back to my Swedish Sticky Cake recipe.
I have a small recipebook where I write down my favorites, and next to this cake recipe is the name of my childhood friend Anna J. She's a Facebook friend now, just welcomed her second child into this world, little Amelie, and has a good life with a husband and a young son. We baked this cake A LOT way back when. We even formed an organization, whose name is written down next to the recipe: The Organization for Spreading the Word of Sticky Cake's Greatness
We had some lofty ambitions, let me tell ya....

I would love it if you would join our organization and make this recipe:

2 eggs
1 stick of melted butter
1 1/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup all purpose flour
a pinch of salt
3-4 tablespoons of cocoa

Preheat your oven to 390F.
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. I usually just mix with a spatula.
Refrain from eating the mix. :-)
Place a heaping tablespoon full of mix into muffin cups in a muffinpan (or regular cookie sheet).
Bake for 15 minutes.

You can also make this cake in a small ovenproof dish, just bake it for about 20 minutes instead and make sure you grease the sides of the dish before adding the sticky cake mix. This version of the sticky cake tastes great with a scoop of icecream.

Dig in with a glass of milk, or tea, or coffee....

Welcome to The Organization for Spreading the Word of Sticky Cake's Greatness. We are so glad you could join us.

I'd like to be a charter member. That recipe sounds so easy that even I can manage it!

Ok, that looks (and sounds) really good! Chocolate and I have a very deep relationship. POUNDS of love...

YD, sometimes with Samantha and June said...

Chocolate and I, well, we have a Love-Hate relationship. I love to eat it and I hate that it can be fattening. LOL!
This recipe sounds so good and so easy. I will have to try it this weekend.

It looks delicious. It sounds wonderful. It needs to be copied. YUMM!

Will you also show us some pics of your veggies soon? You know, here we all scream 'spring!!', which means the snow has just melted away.... :-))) So, some green pictures would be really motivating! If you find the time between all the cakes... I mean.

Just wanted everyone to know that I made these today. They are easy peasy and oh so yummy. I did my squats in front of the oven to offset any caloric intake this weekend :O) Thanks for the recipe.
