Sea Salt Chocolate Cherry Cake

Some days are chocolate cake days.
When you drop your stud earring on the floor, then step on it thumb tack style. That’s a chocolate cake day.
When you leave your keys in your car and the engine running and it takes you like half-an-hour to realize it and run back outside in a panic. Um, chocolate cake day.
When your boss is out of town and the phone rings about 20 times. And every time it’s him. Yeah, get you some chocolate cake for that day.
All of these are possible reasons why you need to shove this cake in your face.
But you don’t really need a reason.


1-Minute Sea Salt Chocolate Cherry Cake

Serves 1
3 tbsp flour
1 tbsp + 1 tsp cocoa
Pinch salt
¼ tsp baking soda
3 tsp sugar (or more if you want it sweeter)
1 tbsp oil (I used vegetable oil)
3 tbsp milk (I used almond milk)
¼ tsp vanilla extract
2-3 chopped (and pitted) Bing cherries
2 squares of salted dark chocolate, chopped
Mix all this stuff together & pour in a greased coffee mug. Microwave for 50-55 seconds. Cool for a few minutes and either eat it out of the mug or invert it on a plate. Enjoy!
