ONE MINUTE MICROWAVE RAMEKIN CHOCOLATE CAKE
I want a warm chocolate cake, pronto. I just woke up from a nap and it was quite chilly so I wanted a warm chocolate cake. Pronto. I decided to try those “One Minute” type of cake recipes that are going around in the internet. I was dubious as to how it would turn out but then I thought, I really want a warm chocolate cake! Pronto! So I tried it. And it wasn’t bad. In fact, with the recipe I used, I was able to make 4 ramekin cakes and all three of us loved it. I had one, and my hubby and daughter had 1 1/2 each. A keeper.
What you need:
50 grams salted butter
1/4 cup white sugar
6 tablespoons plain flour
2 tablespoons dark cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons milk
What you need to do:
Spray the sides and bottoms of 4 ramekin dishes (or microwave safe cups or mugs) with oil and set aside.
In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter in a microwave oven for about 40 seconds. Whisk the sugar in. Add the rest of the ingredients and whisk again until everything is combined. Spoon the batter into the ramekin about 2/3 full. Cover with cling wrap, leaving a little gap on one side. Microwave ONE AT A TIME for 1 minute each. You can actually see the cake rising and stretching the wrap upwards. Carefully take out of the microwave, take out the wrap and cool down a bit before serving straight from the ramekin dish.
