This week has been really busy and the cookies I made yesterday were kind of disgusting, so I couldn’t blog about them. I needed a fast recipe to make up for all the wasted cookie-making time, and started thinking about a chocolate cake I used to make in the microwave.
When I was at high school, I used to come home in the afternoons and make this cake. I would split it in half and microwave it in two mugs – one for me and one for my brother. It took about 5 minutes and was always comforting on a rainy, cold Melbourne day.
I spiced mine up with Salted Caramel, straight out of a jar. You could use ice cream, cream, or nothing at all. All you need to make this is a mug and a tablespoon and you get easy, hot, fudgy, chocolate cake in minutes.
