Anyway long story short, I found this recipe on Pinterest and just had to try it. I mean a 60 second cake... made in the microwave... even I could do that! Plus, I figured it was time to actually make something I've pinned.
It was rainy and gross all weekend, so warm chocolate cake was just what I needed.
OK warning- my pictures are iphone pics, I was WAY to impatient to eat my cake to get out my nice camera and style this properly.
One little note- I made this twice this weekend- can we say piggy!
The first time I followed the instructions to a T. After my husband and I inhaled it in about 2.2 I realized I should try a low fat version.
So the second around I used applesauce in place of the oil.
In the end I actually liked the one with the applesauce better- it was AMAZING.
ready to pop in the microwave
Cook between 45 - 60 seconds
Start on the low end because you can always cook longer
This is totally something I will be making often. It could NOT have been easier and was so delicious!!
PS- I'm thinking of spicing it up next time and using some Cayenne pepper to make a Mexican style chocolate cake, what do you think?
