Milk

1 Minute Microwave Cupcake

1 Minute Microwave Cupcake

1/4 cup dark chocolate chips


2 tbs butter


1 egg


1 tbs oil


1 tbs milk


1/4 cup sugar


pinch of salt


2 tbs cocoa powder (unsweetened)


2 tbs flour


1/8 tsp baking powder


Frosting:


1/2 cup (4oz) cream cheese


1/4 milk


1/3 cup powdered sugar (plus more if you want it sweeter)


2 tbs cocoa powder


(if you don’t like cream cheese frosting, heat 3 tbs milk or cream in the microwave until steamy, then pour over 1/3 cup chocolate chips, stir until melted. Pour the chocolate sauce over the cupcake. It will be messy, but delicious)


(Makes 3)


In a microwave safe bowl, add the chocolate chips and the butter. Microwave for 20 seconds, stir and repeat until melted.


In a separate bowl, add the egg, oil, milk, sugar and salt and beat with a fork until well combined. Add the melted chocolate and stir again. Sprinkle the cocoa powder, flour and baking powder over the egg mixture and stir again with the fork until well combined.


Distribute equally between three baking cups (standard cupcake papers will not work). I also added 4 chocolate chips to the very center of each cupcake to make a bit of a molten center. Microwave on high for 1 to 1.5 minutes. The “cooking” time will depend largely on the power of your microwave. Mine took 1 minute 15 seconds.


You want to let the cupcake cool a bit because right out of the microwave they are screaming hot. While they cool, make the frosting. Add the milk and the cream cheese to a bowl and beat on high until smooth and creamy. Then add the powdered sugar and the cocoa powder and beat until combined. Add the frosting to a zip lock bag and cut about 1/2 inch off the bottom corner. Pipe the frosting into the cupcake. Serve with a fork.
