I told my girlfriend I would like to eat something sweet and she showed me how to make this cake. It's really easy (even I was able to cook it!! :D ) and quick (it took me about 5-10 minutes ;) ) and tastes really great (it reminds me a chocolate sufflé)!

    No, by spoon I meant the bigger one, for the soup :D But you should use a teaspoon for a baking powder!
