we all know this feeling: Sometimes all you need to be happy is something sweet. To be honest, this happens quite often to me, but that’s different story altogether 😀
Sometimes this craving is simple but sometimes you want more than just a bit chocolate or gummy bears. For these moments – or when there’s an unannounced visitor – this microwave cake is a terrific solution! Warm, fluffy and with built-in chocolate sauce: No one would ever guess that came from the microwave if you don’t tell them!
Microwave Chocolate Cake
makes 2 cups
- 4 tsp cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 6 tbsp flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp oil
- 4 tbsp milk
- 40 g chopped chocolate
Put 1 tsp of cocoa powder into each of 2 large cups. Add 1 tbsp syrup to each cup and mix well.
In a small bowl combine the remaining ingredients – except the chocolate chunks – to make a batter. Now, fold in the chopped chocolate and evenly spread over the cups. Cook for 1 -1:30 minutes at 800W.
Allow to cool briefly and then either turn onto a plate or enjoy directly from the cup.
Super simple and super fast, so try it out and impress everyone with your ‘baking’ skills 😛
Stay sweet & HAPPY ‘BAKING’!
