Microwave Chocolate Lava Cake

One Portion Microwave Chocolate Lava Cake aka Emergency Cake
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 oz chocolate chunk piece
In a microwave safe cup/mug, at least 10 oz size, melt butter, add all the ingredients except chocolate chunk till combined. A fork works nicely in this small scale. Once mixed add the chocolate chunk in the center of the cup and submerge in the mixture. Microwave on high, start with 30 seconds and an additional 10 second increments till batter is cooked but not too dry. Eat warm with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream.  If you have a fresh orange you can add a little zest and swap one tablespoon of milk for orange juice to make an Chocolate Orange Lava cake. Play around with flavor, a pinch of cinnamon or cayenne or a finish of sea salt. It's a great way to experiment without the commitment of an entire cake.
