Rice crispy cakes and melt the chocolate in there?

Search the recipes page on here for microwave chocolate cake. I've made the All-in-one recipe a few times and it's lovely, and very quick and easy. (Sorry, can't link on phone)

You don't even need a proper cake tin, I've used various Pyrex and ceramic dishes. Use a bigger dish than you think necessary - it grows quite impressively!

Good luck!

Yes, very easy to make cakes in the microwave. Off the top of my head, I know you can cook Betty Crocker devils food cake mix in the micro for 8 mins. It's delicious if you drop some Betty Crocker chocolate frosting in before cooking too smile it ends up like a chocolate volcano when you turn it out!
