One Egg Chocolate Cake

27 Sep

oneeggcake2These were the simple, but magical words I typed into the Google search engine. I was mad that there was only one egg left in the fridge, and that the butter was salted and not unsalted. Luckily, this led me to discovering what is sure to become one of my favorite chocolate cake recipes. It’s fluffy but moist, sweet but not too sweet, and just chocolately enough.

I didn’t have golden syrup (seems to be a British thing), but if you do, go for it.

Here is the recipe, word for word from this lovely lady: http://www.food.com/recipe/one-egg-chocolate-cake-212511?scaleto=12.0&st=null&mode=us

    I can’t tell you the number of times I have gone out just to buy that 1 egg I am short of for a recipe. You just saved me a lot of sweat and tears. 😛
