    Grab a Spoon or something and start pouring the sauce over the spoon and onto the cake mix (this helps prevent holes in the mix).

    Then shove the cake and sauce mix into the Microwave and Nuke it for 8.00 minutes (1100w microwave)


    Click to view full size!


    then let the waiting begin

    when it beeps, take it out and poke the cake, go with the flow here, if you think its ready then leave it out to cool, if not put it back in for a minute or so. If you take it out at 8.00m then it will be more gooey, if you put it in for another minute it will be more spongy.

    When you take it out for good, leave to cool for a minute or two because it will be Fu@%&ng hot!

    Serve By itself;

    3 1/4 cups of sugar?? and another 1/2 cup for the sauce :Paranoid:

    The pudding I make uses 1 1/4 cups and it's really rich and chocolatey, sorry I don't mean to crap on your recipe I just think it's better to use as little sugar as possible, you could probably cut it down to 2 cups and it would still be the same.

    Cooked in the microwave? Makes me think of the 5 Minute Mug Cake :Paranoid: Wouldn't mind trying to make this, but don't have a microwave safe dish of the right shape.

    Just cooked this pudding with though ran out of sugar so could only put in 1.5 in the cake and 1/2 in the sauce (i had to use caster sugar though).

    Damn rich cake, cooked it longer than 8 minutes though, all up I'd say 15? Maybe shit microwave.

    still a good recipe, thanks CyberBeat

    Definitely too much sugar in the cake itself, my pancake recipe has much the same ingredients but only half a cup of sugar, and its still rich enough to not require toppings.

    I'll try this one sometime next week, have to get ingredients and figure out oven temp/time.

    Hey all,
    Thanks for the responses, Its a great recipe. And yea it is a lot of sugar, but thats what makes it so good!
    Experiment, Have a play with the sugar, take some out and see how it goes, Play with it. Taste it and just keep trying until its perfect.

    Have Fun!

    The amount of sugar is probably designed to counter the fact its cooked in the microwave.

    i read it as 3/4 cups of sugar, that's all I used, and it worked fine.

    Hi all,
    Yea this is a popular recipe. I grabbed this from one that used coffee and brown sugar for the sauce and i then modified it so it was just chocolate.

    So you have probably heard of something similar before.

    Anyway i have to go because its 11.21 and i have (mock) NCEA exams tommorow!

    3 & 1/4 + the 1/2 cups of sugar in the sauce is way too much sugar... im sure the person who said first measurement is 3/4 cup is right.

    Pretty good recipe, made it tonight. Would perhaps go better with more sauce and being cooked in the oven, at least to bake the top for a bit to give it some crunch.

    Otherwise, spot on! :)
