"This can be made any time in just minutes. Delicious and decadent served with a scoop of ice cream on top, and even some extra chocolate sauce. I found this on the internet (Bake Play Smile) and wouldn't change a thing.... so delicious and just the thing when you need a really quick chocolate fix!"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Select a large mug (a small one will result in an overflow of your cake).

Step 2

Put the mug onto a microwave safe plate (just in case it does overflow).

Step 3

Place the butter into your mug and microwave for 10 seconds (or until butter is melted).

Step 4

Add the egg, milk and vanilla essence and lightly beat with a fork until really well combined.

Step 5

Add the dry ingredients into your mug and beat with a fork until well combined with no lumps at all.

Step 6

Place the mug into the microwave and cook for 30 seconds on medium heat.

Step 7

Place the caramel chocolate squares into the middle of the cake.

Step 8

Place the mug back into the microwave for a further 30 seconds on medium heat and watch it carefully to make sure the cake doesn't overflow.

Step 9

The cake should be cooked on the outside and gooey in the middle.

Step 10

As the wattage in all microwave's differ and if you think the cake is still a little undercooked , then pop it back into the microwave and cook for a further

Step 11

5 - 10 seconds on medium and if necessary repeat until it's cooked how you prefer it, but make sure not too overcook it as the cake will turn out hard.

Step 12

Take cake out of the microwave and top with ice cream and sauce if using.

This is two big serves I ended up serving 3 of us with the DS getting half and the DM and myself getting a quarter and we all enjoyed. I served it with some vanilla yoghurt and a couple of strawberries on the side. Mine took a little longer than directed and I did overcook it a little but it was still moist though not gooey, a little sweet for my tastes but still a nice dessert, thank you Tisme, made for Pick Me tag game.
