Introduction: 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:
- 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
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.
Step 2: Mixing!
Mix together the melted butter and the sugar, and then add in everything else!
Whisk it together until it's really smooth and creamy.
Step 3: Pour Into Ramekins/mugs
Spray your ramekins with cooking spray or smear some butter inside.
Divide the mixture in half between two ramekins or mugs.
Step 4: Microwave!
Cover each ramekin with plastic wrap - leave a little vent on one of the edges.
Pop them in the microwave for 60 seconds. Make sure to do them one at a time!
(My microwave at home is 600W, and the one in the test kitchen is 1000W - and there was only a five second difference in cooking time.)
Once they're out, let them cool slightly and then turn them out onto a plate.
Step 5: Enjoy!
You just made a five minute chocolate cake that tastes like chocolate cake! HOORAY!
Thanks to Nicole and Wade for helping me finish this one off. :D
