Sweetheart (please make me a) 1-Minute Chocolate Cake

Posted on 12 February 2020

How about a Valentine’s Day quickie?

Make a warm, double-chocolate little “mug cake” for your sweetie any time he or she implores you.

Betty Crocker, that tart, makes it possible with her “Super-Moist Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix.”

Measure some mix into a mug or small bowl. Stir in water and chocolate chips. Watch it circle around in the microwave for up to 60 seconds. Cool slightly—the chocolate chips will stay gooey—then top with whipped cream.

Most of all, it means less time in the kitchen—a lovely indulgence for both of you.

Recipe doubles well. Increase microwave time by about 10 seconds.

Note: Feel free to adjust proportions to suit your taste, and cooking time to suit your microwave.

  • ¼ cup chocolate fudge cake mix (I use Betty Crocker Super-Moist Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix)
  • 2 ½ – 3 tablespoons water (wetter batter makes a fluffier cake)
  • 1 ½ tablespoons chocolate chips

Mix in a microwave-safe mug. Cook on high 50 seconds. Serve in the mug or run a knife around the cake and remove onto a plate. Top with whipped cream for full effect.
