It’s Friday again (thank goodness)! This week, I’d like to put the spotlight on something that I can’t believe I didn’t discover sooner.
Fan Friday Presents…Microwave Baking!
I love the microwave. It quickly and efficiently reheats leftovers, steams veggies, helps make quick chocolate sauce, and now, it bakes, too. It is a recent trend, and I did try it a few weeks ago, but the recipe turned out a bit sub par. So when I made the Single Serving Chocolate Chip Cake from the one and only Chocolate Covered Katie (Seriously, check out her recipes. Now!), I was blown away by how easy and delicious it was.
The recipe pictured is German Chocolate Cake For One — which, while it had an amazing texture, was extremely lacking on sweetness. This is our fault because we subbed out the oil for applesauce and then reduced the sugar by 1/2 tbsp. Fortunately the chocolate chips on top and some ice cream made up for the lack of sweetness.
Well, what are you waiting for? All you need is 10 minutes and a microwave! And then there’s no pesky leftovers to deal with (or tempt you).
