A friend showed me a link to a 5-minute chocolate cake you bake in the microwave. (No. Really) So, of course I had to try this out.
You can find the recipe here: http://www.dizzy-dee.com/recipe/chocolate-cake-in-5-minutes
I whipped up a quick peanut butter frosting recipe to spread on top:
2 Tbs softened butter (room temp)
1/4 cup cream peanut butter
1/2 c powdered sugar
beat in 2-3 tsp of milk (room temp) gradually until you reach desired consistency.
Not counting the "let the cold stuff get to room temp" time - it probably took me 20 minutes to get the ingredients together, make it, wait for the cake to set, frost, and clean-up.
I thought this a very good cake for the chocolate craving you may get - I wouldn't bake 20 of them to take as your pot-luck contribution - but it was very good! I enjoyed it warm with the peanut butter slightly melting into the cake the most. And, of course, I recommend a nice cold glass or organic milk to go with this tasty treat!
