I'm intrigued - I am gonna try this. Perfect, easy, quick little something for when you have to have something chocolately!

I just made this. It works as advertised. It's a moist and dense cake and went well with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

When I try it again I'm going to add more sugar and a dash of salt.

Our microwave is only 750 watts. Would you ( any of you) go with a full extra minute?
Thank you for sharing!

That's a good starting point. It might take some experimentation to get it right.

okay, I just saw this and had to try it for breakfast

AFTER I baked it, I checked the wattage of my microwave.......1200W! I got an acceptable product, but a little chewy around the edges. I will not cook it at full power next time...

I did add a pinch of course salt....and ended up eating the whole thing

If I wanted to replace some of the cocoa powder with espresso would that work? Maybe 1/2 and 1/2? Or should I just add it and then add a bit more liquid - like Kahlua or Bailey's to compensate? I can see broken up pieces of peppermint in here too, if you like peppermint, or a bit of Chombord drizzled in. TONIGHT this is on the menu!

Made this for dessert tonight. And, yes, it definitely needed salt, which I added. Will add more next time and added chopped nuts with chocolate chips, too.

I mixed it in a separate bowl, then poured it into a jumbo bowl-shaped mug that I sprayed with nonstick spray. My microwave is more than 1,000 watts so I cooked it at power level 8 for the 3 minutes. Perfect.

Cake was very good and I ate half of it 'cuz I want to have some for tomorrow night. It was tempting to eat only half.

My Dh and I made this tonight we subbed the vegetable oil and chocolate chips with blood orange olive oil and white chocolate chips and it was amazing with a scoup of ice cream! Def. serves two but we each ate our own. Before we had a chance to finish it though, it got really really hard. :( Have no idea what wattage our microwave is. I'd mix in a seperate bowl next time too, but the dh says it would take away from the five minute part of the cake. Smarty pants.
