Thanks to healthy living and recipe blogs, it is no longer unusual to hear the words breakfast and chocolate in the same sentence. For me breakfast means multiple things, one of those things being quiet time. Although I like to spend time to prepare my breakfast I can’t always afford to. If breakfast prep is going to cut into one of my only times for solitude, then breakfast prep must be cut.

It is for these crunched mornings when a 4-ingredient recipe allows me to keep a delicious breakfast AND my time of solitude.

The chocolate really stands out because there are so few ingredients in this recipe. If you are a chocolate lover you will love this. Most, if not all, will want to add a sweetener to this


Two words describe the texture of this cake perfectly: dense and fudgy!
General Comments:
Cooking time will depend on the size of the bowl you use. I used a bowl that had a circumference about the size of my palm.

The cocoa powder I used (from a bulk store) had a 22-24% fat content, which is higher than most commercial cocoa powders.


When do you get your time of solitude?
