Description

One for you. One for your honey!

Ingredients

  • ¼ cups All-purpose Flour
  • ¼ cups Sugar
  • ¼ cups Cocoa Powder
  • 1 pinch (generous) Salt
  • ¼ cups Milk
  • ¼ cups Butter, Melted
  • 2 whole Large Eggs, Lightly Beaten
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ cups (Heaping) Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips, Plus A Few More For Sprinkling On Top
  • Powdered Sugar, If Desired

Preparation

In a small mixing bowl, stir together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt. Add milk, butter, eggs, and vanilla. Stir well to incorporate. Fold in chocolate chips. Divide batter between 2 microwave-safe cups (my cups hold 6 fluid ounces) and then sprinkle the tops with a few more chocolate chips.

Microwave both cups at the same time on high for 2 minutes. The cake will rise up above the cup rim, and then settle back down as it cools. Microwave strength varies, so adjust accordingly. The cakes should be cooked, but very moist, and a bit gooey in the middle.

Remove cakes from the microwave when done. Allow cakes to cool for about 15 minutes prior to eating. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.

These are best when eaten within a few hours of cooking them. As they cool, the chocolate chips will harden, so the cakes will be less gooey. But they’re still very, very good.
