What is something sweet I can make with milk, egg, sugar, flour & cocoa?

Asked by zookeeny (883points) May 17th, 2010

I have no butter or marg. I literally have the ingredients above plus baking powder, baking soda, oil, 2 banannas, vanilla essence and icing sugar. What can I make I am hungry and need something filling but sweet. I have no money until tomorrow morning so I need something now to fill the gap until then. My fridge defrosted and I lost all my food as it went off. I was able to scrape together enough change for milk! Arrr its been one of those weeks! So any yummy recipes I can make would be gratefully recieved.

Pancakes! Using oil instead of butter, you can make pancakes with the flour, eggs, milk, and baking soda. Add the bananas for fun if you like.

That beats my hot chocolate and a fried egg . . . (but it is breakfast where I live, so I didn’t think of cake)

Mix together and use for a facial.

I have an old family recipe for chocolate cake, made from scratch, that’s probably a lot like the one linked above. I’m hurrying out right now and can’t go look it up, but I know there’s no butter in it. It would be amazing with frosting and a layer of sliced bananas in the middle, or just eaten with a banana.

If you’re going to be out of food, you sure kept the right stuff.

In fact, if I didn’t believe your story, I would think it was just too wonderful that you have all the right ingredients, right down to the vanilla. Great way to promote baking without using a mix!

There’s a cake that you make in a mug with a microwave, but sadly, I don’t remember the proportions.

Make thick frosting.

Well I can think of two things. A chocolate drink or a warm milk and egg drink. I know the second may sound bad but I had it a lot as a kid when I needed iron.
Warm milk, and in a cup scramble just the egg yolk and sugar together. Add the warm milk and a vanilla extract. Stir till the sugar is melted in the milk. It is very tasty. I gave it to my daughter a few months ago and she loved it. Its warm filling and gives you a boost of energy.

Alton Brown’s Crepes!!!!!!

They are SO good. You could sub oil for butter, although I personally think butter would taste better. I always add more sugar and vanilla than the recipe calls for. You can slice the bananas and use that as filling for your crepes.

Chocolate pancakes or brownies.

regular pancakes with hot chocolate drizzle [and whipped cream and raspberries?]

That would be pudding ingredients to me. Stir the milk and eggs, add sugar and some flour, then the bananas and throw in some chocolate and vanilla to taste. Pour in an oiled dish and cook until it sets.

Perfect! Here’s a microwave chocolate cake that’s really nice. Try it before you say EW (if that’s what you were thinking…) :)

4 tbsp flour
4 tbsp sugar
4 tbsp cocoa
1 egg
3 tbsp milk
3 tbsp oil

Mix together in microwavable dish and microwave on high for 3 mins. This is just a single serving, or at most 2 servings. I love it, it really is nice.

@NaturallyMe – Just tossing a thanks out there because I remembered this recipe existed and it was exactly what I was in the mood for this evening, two years later…
