Chocolate Lava Cake
This microwave cake is quick, easy, and delicious – and it’s good left over!
1 pkg. chocolate cake mix + ingredients listed on box for cake
1 can chocolate frosting
Mix cake as directed on box. Pour into 4-quart microwave-safe glass measuring cup. (The Pampered Chef’s Classic Batter Bowl is great for this!)
Drop 5 scoops of icing on top of batter. Do NOT mix in.
Microwave on HIGH, uncovered, for 9 minutes (longer if you have a smaller-watt microwave).
Remove from microwave and turn out onto cake plate or large platter. Cake and measuring cup will be extremely hot, so use caution!
Slice and serve with ice cream.
Note: I tried this with a yellow cake and a different flavor of frosting, but it wasn’t as good – and it looked even worse. The dark color of the chocolate hides the cake’s “ugliness”.
