Ingredients

Microwave Chocolate Cupcake for Two

  • 3 tbsp plain flour
  • 2 ½ tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 ½ tbsp cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp butter melted (or flavourless oil)
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • Splash of vanilla extract

Chocolate Frosting for Two

  • 3 tbsp butter softened
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 5-6 tbsp icing sugar
  • Dash of milk if needed

Instructions

Microwave Chocolate Cupcake for Two

  • Mix dry ingredients together in a small bowl or mug until combined.
  • Add in melted butter (or oil), milk and vanilla, and stir with a small whisk or fork until smooth.
  • Separate batter between 2 large baking cups (approx 6cm diameter).
  • Place first baking cup in the middle of the microwave and cook for 1 min on medium-high.
  • Remove the cupcake once cooked, and repeat the process with the other cupcake (the best way to obtain evenly risen cupcakes).

Chocolate Frosting for Two

  • Using a small spatula, mix the butter well in a bowl until smooth.
  • Add in the cocoa powder and stir until there are no more lumps, then gradually add in icing sugar until the frosting is creamy and thick.
  • If the mixture is too thick to spread, add in a dash of milk to loosen it up.
  • Transfer frosting to a small piping bag with your chosen nozzle attached, and pipe onto the 2 cupcakes, alternatively just ice by hand with a small offset spatula.
