    aaahhh, the wonders of the microwave....hard to believe that this wonderfully scrumptious and chocolatey cake can be ready in about 4 minutes after preparation. I changed the ingredient measurements a bit, but it was still fabulous. This is definitely one of my favourite quick recipes now  -  17 Jul 2011


    really good. cooked in 4 min at 1000w. I used a silicon bread loaf dish as there wouldn't of been enough batter for a normal size cake tin.  -  02 Jul 2010


    This is so easy to make and delightfully delicious. The only thing I cut back on was the amount of sugar that went into the batter. I added 50g caster sugar, as I thought there would be enough sweetness in the fudge sauce. And I was right...yummo! Thanks for sharing this recipe.  -  13 Apr 2015
