Microwave Lava CakePosted: August 23, 2012
This recipe is for desperate women late at night. You know…for those days you need something sweet and chocolate-y late at night but are too tired to drive. I have made the chocolate microwave mug cake before, and it’s alright. A bit rubbery but ok. I wanted to try something different to offset the rubberiness, and decided to try a lava cake. Full disclosure, it wasn’t gooey in the middle, but I suspect I cooked it a bit too long so it may work with less time in the microwave.
2 T butter
1 heaping T cocoa
3 T sugar
1 heaping T flour
In large mug put butter and 1 heaping T of cocoa, plus 1 T. of the sugar. Microwave until smooth. In a separate bowl whisk the egg with the remaining sugar until smooth and frothy. Add to butter cocoa mixture and add the flour, then whisk until smooth. Cook in microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds on 70% power.
I poured whipping cream over mine and topped with a generous spoonful of homemade triple berry jam. It was really really nice and hit the spot perfectly.
