Picture of chocolate microwave cake
A couple weeks after I figured out regular microwave cake I had a serious craving for chocolate cake. I needed it! While I've got a lovely recipe for a gigantic chocolate cake, I wasn't feeling too excited about baking for an hour after work. :)

This chocolate microwave cake recipe is nearly exact to the original microwave cake, but we're subbing out a little flour for cocoa powder!

Step 1: Ingredients:

Picture of ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 6 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
Typically I don't really get too technical with the measuring of flour via tablespoons, I just put 2-3 tablespoons of the cocoa powder in a 1/2 cup measure and then throw the flour in on top. :D

And speaking of cocoa powder - the better you use here the better it will taste! I highly suggest Callebaut baking cocoa. I ordered some for the test kitchen and I loooooove it.

This was absolutely *delicious*! My daughter and I made it and put some frozen raspberries in a layer between the batter. This recipe is definitely a keeper! Thanks!

Yep! I use that at home sometimes. :)

You might want to up the amount of it if it's not chocolate-y enough by a half tablespoon, though!

I put more sugar and more cocoa for more chocolate! I am going to try it with some chocolate chips mixed with the cocoa!

I'm a little scared of using plastic wrap, it seems like it sticks to the cake and melts (when I tried the plain recipe), what would happen if you omit it?
where is the amount of baking powder? it's in the picture but not the recipe??

1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
