Quick Microwave Pudding Cakes Recipe

Hey there- I finally have a recipe for today… minus actual pictures.  Which is sad, but I looked online for images that look like it and that will have to do for now.

Okay, so do you ever just need a quick dessert, preferably a baked good that is chocolate-y?

I literally NEED one all too often.  So, I had to find a quick option, I looked around online and found a few recipes, and used my own chocolate pudding cake, to work out the perfect microwave concoction.  And I am here to share it with you TODAY!  That is right, you can make one for yourself in the next 5 minutes… microwave pudding cakes recipe!

Okay so the recipe is rather simple.

Microwaved Hot Fudge Pudding Cake
(serves 2)
1/4 c flour
1/4 c granulated sugar
1 Tbsp cocoa
1/4 tsp baking powder
small pinch salt
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp melted butter
2 T milk
Optional chopped pecans or walnuts in desired amount
Mix above ingredients together and split evenly between two large ramekins (7-10 oz)
or wider coffee mugs would work too.
In another bowl mix together
1/4 c granulated sugar
1 Tbsp cocoa
Sprinkle half of mixture over each ramekin.
Pour 1/4 cup boiling water over each ramekin.
(I usually just heat up some water in a mug in the microwave, while I mix up the rest)
Place one ramekin on a small plate (in case of overflow) and  microwave for 1 minute – 1 minute 30 seconds.
Serve with vanilla Ice cream!!!
**Usually in the oven version the pudding is on the bottom while the cake is on top, this doesn’t happen in the microwave version, just FYI.

  1. I make this all the time since I only have a microwave where I am staying!! I use applesauce instead of melted butter so it even feels healthier and is just as yummy! 🙂 Also I have found that in the topping that creates the fudge, you can put a bit less sugar if you’d like to cut down on that a bit…

  2. I just made it and instead of doing two servings i did one. i put it into a bowl and did it and it turned out amazing. i cooked it for an extra 12 seconds cause it was a little to watery at the top but its amazing. not too sweet, i did skim a little on the sugar, and so rich and creamy. its so perfect. my new chocolate sweet treat for sure. perfect with a glass of milk!

  3. You said “**Usually in the oven version the pudding is on the bottom while the cake is on top, this doesn’t happen in the microwave version, just FYI.”
    What does that mean?

  4. Didn’t really like it. It was a weird recipe and was too sweet. It felt uncooked and sort of slimy. I would give it a 4/10.
