Easy, fast and the right portion. I love it. Microwave Chocolate Souffle.
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sifted Dutch-processed cocoa
¼ teaspoon baking powder
½ ounce chunk of semisweet or milk chocolate
Scoop of vanilla ice cream
Melt butter in the mug in the microwave. Whisk in the milk and sugar, then the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt using a fork. You should have a liquid batter. Drop the chunk of chocolate or the chocolate chips in the center and press it down gently to make sure it is submerged. Microwave on High power for 30 seconds and check. The cake should look puffed and a bit dull. Insert a spoon and the batter should have produced a cake-like texture with a molten chocolate center. Serve with an optional, but highly recommended, scoop of ice cream.
