5 minute chocolate cake

A while ago some kind soul sent me the recipe for 5 minute chocolate cake. I must remember to get them back at some point.... Anyway, that recipe is at least partly responsible for me needing to lose a stone at the moment, so I've had a go at making it healthier. Still a work in progress so any ideas or comments are welcome!

1/2 cup cooked chickpeas
1 egg
1 heaped tsp cocoa powder
1 tsp unrefined sugar or honey
1 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp melted coconut oil (optional)

Blend together the ingredients and pour into a mug (I used an immersion blender in the mug which saves on washing up a bit). Microwave for 3 - 3 1/2 minutes on full power.

The cake is light but a little dry I find. You can serve it with a big dollop of creme fraiche to help with that while I work on making it moister!

I have not tried this recipe yet, but I have found in other cake recipes that adding an additional egg does the trick for moistness.
