A cake in fourteen minutes?? In the microwave??
I know it sounds completely unbelievable but it’s true!
The greatest thing about this cake is that it is ready to eat in fourteen minutes. The worst thing about this cake is also that it is ready in only fourteen minutes. It’s a curse and a blessing.
A year ago I hosted a pampered chef party at my house. My friendly local Pampered Chef Consultant, Corin came by with her bag of recipes and a ton of fun cooking tools. We broke out the wine and had a good time. During the party I became completely mesmerized with the deep covered baker that goes in the microwave. You can cook literally anything in the microwave with this stoneware baker.
The recipe she made that night was the Chocolate Lava Cake and quite honestly I bought the deep covered baker solely for the 14 minute chocolate lava cake. There are a slew of recipes that go with the pan but who needs ’em I have cake.
It’s so easy it’s almost ridiculous.
Chocolate Cake Mix
Pre-made Chocolate Icing (16oz can)
Make the cake in the deep covered baker as directed on the box. Then spoon the icing into the uncooked cake batter. Cook in the microwave for 14 minutes. That’s it! In fourteen minutes the cake is completely baked and the icing is melty and delicious!
Tips and suggestions:
I thought I could outthink this recipe and tried it with both vanilla icing and white cake but it didn’t work as well. You really need the chocolate for all the gooey lava goodness.
Was it worth buying this deep covered baker exclusively for cake? Absolutely!
