Chocolate and Mint. I can't get enough of the combo lately and it's been awhile since I made a 5 minute cake. I heart them when I need a quick sweet fix. Cake in 5 minutes you can't beat that?!
If you haven't made one of these... it's like a weight loss surgery friendly Easy Bake Oven cake. Kids think it's magic. So if you have children or grandchildren making one of these cakes with them is a MUST DO.
Shelly's 5 Minute Sugar Free Chocolate Peppermint Cake
1 Egg, beaten
3 Tablespoons Milk (I used Vanilla Soy)
2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Peppermint)
2 Tablespoons Canola Oil
3 Tablespoons Multigrain Pancake Mix
2 Tablespoons Cocoa
1 scoop Chocolate Protein Powder
1 Measuring Cup or Microwave Safe Mug (I use a 2 cup Pyrex measuring cup)
In a measuring cup or microwave safe mug, Mix egg, milk, syrup and oil and combine thoroughly. In a separate bowl, mix pancake mix, cocoa, protein powder and salt. Tip dry into wet and stir till combined.
Nuke in microwave on full power for 2 minutes* adding 20 seconds if still wet on top. *Microwaves vary and mine is getting old so I just recently upped the time these cook to 2 minutes and 20 seconds on mine. Let the cake sit for three or so minutes (it pulls away from the sides) before tipping it onto a plate. Yields 4-5 slices. You can serve it warm or I love these cakes when they cool I think they taste even more chocolatey.
Top with SF Chocolate Syrup, SF Whipped Topping and Crushed SF Candy Canes/Starlight Mints, Chocolate Mint Candies or grated SF Andes Mint Chocolate.

Highlights of the Day:
* Took my Mum to a Mexican Bar/Restaurant down the street to watch the Steelers game. Really nice crowd. We had a blast drinking Hefeweizen and eating fajitas and killer refried beans. I ran into our awesome fix-it guy from my old school. Who just kept saying things like, "Oh my God, you look beautiful" and "what an amazing change" which made me feel great especially since I wasn't feeling too beautiful or amazing lately. It was a fun night and the Steelers won so I know my pal Erin will be partying.
* Ohhh I've been meaning to mention... for those of you that have been looking unsuccessfully for Max Protein Powder (the only protein powder I use well besides Click Espresso Protein) the company is now selling it on their website.
I use Chocolate or Vanilla Max Protein in all my protein shakes and smoothies, protein ice cream and baking. You can use any protein powder you prefer though most will work fine.
* Right now. Fuzzy blanket. Listening to tunes. AIMing with fellow insomniac pals. Sipping a cup of Candy Cane Cocoa. See I told you I can't get enough of the chocolate mint combo.
