Chocolate “cup” cakes

20 Jun

I was recently reading an issue of People magazine and found a recipe for Michael Symon’s Cake in a Cup.  It looked easy, decadent, and delicious.  Best part is you bake them in the microwave.


  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Put butter and chocolate in a glass bowl. Microwave for 1 minute on highest setting. Stir until melted.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together sugar, and next 4 ingredients. Whisk in chocolate mixture.  Divide among four 10 oz coffee mugs.
  3. Place mugs in microwave and cook for 3 minutes on highest setting. Let cool 30 seconds.  Top with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
