Instant Chocolate Cake

Remember Easy Bake Ovens? I never wanted/had one because we always made cakes from scratch at home. It caused me to have an aversion to any box desserts. However, there is one appeal that I miss from the easy bake quick desserts - the fact that they are quick :)! This recipe whips up a chocolate cake for at least 2 people in under 15 minutes. It's made from scratch, and pretty good. I made this for my mom and brother because I don't like chocolate all that much. Enjoy!
