Ever want cake, but feel guilty you won’t be able to eat the entire cake?  You can take a portion of a cake mix and make a mini cake in the microwave!  Yes, microwave chocolate cake for one whenever you want.

We’ve paired down the recipe of a full size cake down to a coffee cup serving (and you’ll want a bigger 2-3 cup coffee cup) for this recipe.  We’ve also paired down the frosting, so you have enough for one cake (with maybe a little to eat for fun).

Microwave time may vary, we cooked our cake with a 1200 watt microwave.

3 tablespoons water
1 egg

chocolate frosting:
3 Tablespoons cocoa powder
1 cup powder sugar
2 Tablespoons room temperature butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 Tablespoons milk

cake instructions:

In a bowl mix all the ingredients.

Take a 2-3 cup coffee cup and spray with non-stick spray.

Pour the batter into the cup and place into the microwave.

Put the power at 70% and microwave for 2-3 minutes.

Check the cake after 2 minutes to see if it is done with a toothpick (toothpick will come out clean).

If not, microwave for another minute.

Overcooking will make the cake tough.

While the cake is cooling, make the frosting.

Chocolate frosting instructions:

In a bowl, mix the cocoa powder and powder sugar together.

Add the butter, milk and vanilla.

Mix until smooth.

IF the frosting looks shiny (and not like frosting), add a little more powder sugar until no longer shiny and looks like frosting.

Spread the frosting over your cooled cake and enjoy.
