    Rouge's Chocolate Molten Lava Cake (in a mug)

    1/4 cup of plain flour
    1/4 cup of brown Sugar
    2 Tbsp of Cocoa powder
    1 Egg
    3 Tablespoons of Milk
    3 Tablespoons of Tub butter
    8 squares of dark chocolate (roughly chopped into chunks) - DO NOT USE CHIPS! It helps the molten process.

    Ok so mix the butter and sugar together then add the egg and mix, then add the milk and flour/cocoa. Once you are happy with the consistency stir though the choc chunks. Microwave in a mug (do not use a ramekin as it changes the cake completely) for 1min 20. Place a flat bowl over the top of the mug and turn out. You will be left with what looks like an erupted volcano with thick fudgey chocolate sauce and a beautiful light cake underneath.

    I played with many recipes to perfect this. You need the brown sugar for the syrupy sauce, you need butter to ensure that it has that real flavour (I prefer not to melt it as it has a lighter sponge this way) and you must use chunks of chocolate instead of chips! I tend to drizzle it with cream. And DH and I can easily share one between us.

    It should look like this...

    Rouge - honestly what are you doing to me.... i had MOST of the ingredients as basics in the cupboard but when i saw this i HAD to go and buy some dark chocolate... so much for my don't buy it don't eat it philosophy!

    So now it looks like i'm making this today at some stage.....

    All I can say is......WOW!

    Had this on Friday night and it came out beautiful, so rich! I couldn't eat the whole thing, my DH had a few mouthfuls and loved it.

    Quick question, should the cooking time be reduced depending on the wattage of the microwave? Not sure if mine had quite enough sauce or if I am just being a piggy.
