3 Minute “Cup” Cake

I awoke this morning to a most delish idea from a blog called Two Chums. They had written about a cupcake that you can make from start to finish in less than 10 min., so thought I would share this with you. Am making them tonight for dinner.

They found it in a Food Network magazine and said it is so good and much like the “molten chocolate cake” that is so infamous around different restaurants.

Myself, like Two Chums, have never “baked” anything in the microwave oven before so it is broadening my horizons.You really do bake them for 3 min in coffee mugs in the microwave. I think you are going to like this. So easy and so yummy.

8 oz butter

8 oz dark chocolate, chopped

3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup flour

4 eggs

1 teas sea salt

1 teas orange zest or vanilla extract

Whipped cream and shaved chocolate

Put butter and chocolate in glass bowl and microwave for 1 min on high. Stir until all is melted.

In another bowl, mix flour, sugar, eggs, salt and flavor of your choice, zest or extract.

Whisk in melted chocolate mixture. Divide into mugs (4-6, depending on how many you need or how large you want the “cup cakes”)

Place mugs in microwave and cook on high for 3 minutes. Test the cupcakes. They should be firm on the sides and soft in the middle. Cook 30 sec to 1 min, if needed. Add whipped cream and chocolate shavings and serve immediately. Will post pictures when I make them.

Can’t wait to try them tonight. Write or send a picture if you make them. Have a Chocoholic Weekend!
