5 Minute Fudgy Chocolate Microwave Cake Recipe
  • Meal


  • Cusine


3/4 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 cup granulated sugar, divided

3/4 cup cocoa, divided

2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 plus 1/8 teaspoon salt

2 large egg yolks

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips

1 cup warm water


Combine flour, 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons cocoa, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt in a 1 1/2 quart shallow microwave safe dish. Add egg yolks, butter, vanilla, chocolate chips, and water to the mix, and stir until almost combined (batter will be lumpy). Stir remaining 2 tablespoons cocoa and remaining 1/4 cup sugar in a small bowl and sprinkle over batter. Microwave on high power until puffed, bubbling, and set (but still slightly jiggles), 4 to 5 minutes. Carefully remove from microwave and serve warm (see note).
