I love chocolate anything. Every time I see a chocolate dessert on a menu, I order it and devour every single spoonful of goodness before licking the plate clean. And if I had to pick a favourite chocolate dessert, I’d have to say chocolate cake smothered in a rich chocolate icing.
Chocolate cake with chocolate icing is amazing. There’s only one thing wrong with it – it takes too long to make! First you have to make the batter, then you have to stop yourself from eating all the batter before you bake it, then you have to wait the agonizingly long time for the cake to bake, and finally you have to wait for the cake to cool before you can frost it and decorate it.
That’s where the recipe I’m sharing today comes in. Would you believe that a cake this scrumptious looking takes about 10 minutes to whip up, including baking time? That’s practically as long as it would take to steep a pot of tea or brew a pot coffee to serve with it.
Before I share the recipe with you, I’ll let you in on the secret behind this quick treat – it’s “baked” in your microwave! Microwaving a cake might sound crazy, but this cake is so light and the icing and glaze is so rich that I know you’ll love it.

Microwave Chocolate Marshmallow Cakes
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 2
What you need
The Cake:
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese, creamed kind not from a brick
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 small pinch of salt
  • 2 paper cups, not styrofoam
The Icing:
  • ¼ cup icing sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese, creamed kind not from a brick
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa
  • ¼ cup mini marshmallows
  • A few drops of milk
How you make it
  1. Start by beating your egg white into stiff peaks in one bowl.
  2. In another bowl, cream cream cheese and sugar. Add in the egg yolk, milk, and salt. Stir to combine and then stir in cocoa and flour.
  3. Gently fold the cocoa mixture into your beaten egg whites. Fold just until the batter is smooth with no whites showing.
  4. Use a knife and poke three holes into the bottom of both paper cups and divide batter between the two cups. Microwave on high for about 90 seconds.
  5. While the cakes are "baking", make your icing. Cream together the icing sugar, cream cheese, and cocoa. Add a few drops of milk if necessary and stir in all but six mini marshmallows.
  6. When cakes are finished "baking", run a butter knife along the edges of the cups, empty onto a cutting board and cut in half horizontally. Put the wider half of each cake on a plate, top with some of the icing and a few of the still white mini marshmallows, and sandwich the top of the cakes on top. Save a little of the icing for the glaze.
  7. Add a few drops more milk to the remaining icing and drizzle it over each cake. Enjoy!
If you want to double the recipe, just be sure to only “bake” two cakes at once. The power of microwaves is only so strong.
