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!
Whisk it together until it's really smooth and creamy.
Step 3: Pour into ramekins/mugs
Divide the mixture in half between two ramekins or mugs.
Step 4: Microwave!
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.
