Intro: 2 Minute Single Microwave Cupcake

Because sometimes you want just one cupcake, not 24. And sometimes you want to be able to eat 7 minutes from when you start thinking about it, including prep work and cooking time. This single serving microwave chocolate cupcake takes about 5 minutes to prepare and 2 minutes to cook- perfect week night treat!

Step 1: Ingredients

Ingredients:
-3 Tbs all purpose flour
-1/4 tsp cinnamon
-2 Tbs granulated sugar
-2 Tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
-1/4 tsp baking powder
-1/8 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
-1/2 large egg (scramble the egg in a bowl and then just use half)
-2 Tbs vegetable oil
-2 Tbs water

Optional: frosting/ decorations, however you like them

Step 2: Mix Ingredients in a Cup

Any microwave-safe container will work just fine- I used a glass cup, but a mug or jar would also work.

Step 3: Microwave

Microwave the mixture for about 2 minutes on high- like any other cupcake, you can tell it's done by inserting a toothpick to check whether it will come out clean.

Step 4: Frost/ Decorate

Now is your chance to get creative. I used vanilla frosting and chocolate chips, but you can use whatever you like.

Made this tonight & it was great! Very rich, so I divided it in half. I spread canned fudge icing on top of each portion, then drizzled caramel topping over it! Just enough dessert for my husband and I, without the temptation of a second piece!. Yum!

Replace cocoa powder with instant pudding mix and 1/2 tsp of baking powder (instead of 1/4 tsp), and that cupcake is awesome. 2 minutes is perfect in 900 watt microwave.

It was fast, not really easy ... lots of ingredients.
Spongy but dry, chewy, and no taste
I would do it again with more sugar n oil, less chocolate, and maybe milk instead of water.

Thanks! It is delicious. I've replaced vegetable oil by butter, I think it smells better in desserts.

This is a great recipe to use! My sister and I love it! The first time I tried it, we had followed the recipe exactly but had used whole wheat flour, and then put it in for the recommended 2 minutes, but it turned out a little too dry and chewy for our taste. So, with the next one, I added about a tablespoon of sour cream, and put it in for 1:40 seconds... it was perfect <3 Also, since I want to be able to transport the cake and have other people try it, half of a paper lunch bag that's been sprayed with cooking oil works great as a cupcake liner. Thank you so much for this idea!

I just made this and it's GREAT! It mixes good in a cup but for better results and smoother cake, I would assume mixing it in a bowl would be a little better. I microwaved mine for a minute 30 this time. I might just go with a minute next time, but microwaves vary. Technicalities aside, this is a great recipe that totally works! Thanks for sharing! :)

I made this 2 minutes ago, mostly because I thought "no, that is not real." It's delicious! I will only cook it for 1 minute 30 seconds next time, though, because I like my brownies on the Kilauea side.
