In the mood for something sweet and chewy? Try this recipe for Quick Chewy Cuppa Cake!

It's not quite a sponge cake yet not like a brownie texture either. Light and just sweet enough to satisfy the sugar craving; just chewy enough to calm the need to feed without going overboard.

4 Tbl sugar
3 Tbl butter
1 egg

*Note:See last step for Chocolate Cake
This came out fantastic! A bit flour-y, but I think I didn't mix it well enough. I made this for my mum and brother, so I smothered it in chocolate sauce (they love it). In it I put some Christmas sprinkles as well, to make it festive. It also kind of slouched on itself when I dumped it out of the mug, which gives it a quirky kind of look.<br><br>P.S. I think the photo came out sideways, sorry about that.
I love it! Mmmmm I made them vegan (left out the egg and used soy milk) and it was delicious!
Now I'm hungry again. Those look wonderful.<br />
<strong>YAY!!! CUPPA-CAKE THINGIES FOR EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!</strong>
I tried the chocolate one. Its much better than what you would expect to come out of your microwave.
Yes they are pretty tasty BML just perfect for a late night munchie attack.
They are perfect for that. I never imagined baking something in the microwave before. If you have ever put bread or pizza in the microwave, you know how nasty it gets when it comes out (I hate spongy pizza). I suppose because of the spongy nature of the cake, the microwave doesn't do much to make it bad. I will definatly make microwave cake again!
WOW! The unique texture of this cupcake is great and i tried with ice cream and LOVED IT!!!!! Keep the great instructables coming DebH57!

Why does your stuff look so much nicer than the others? You must be putting in a lot of time and hard work to look this good!
