microwavable chocolate lava cake in a bowl

Late one night last week TMO was hungry for something sweet and chocolate and asked me if I could make him his mom's recipe of brownie pudding. Though I do not like brownie pudding, I have no issues with making it for him usually. But, that night I was tired, so we searched on the internet for a suitable one dish microwavable substitute.
This was so fast and easy that I have decided to keep it on hand for when he needs a fast chocolate fix.
Cake1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
6 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanillastir-in
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cocoa

3 tablespoons coffee, hot or cold


In a microwave-safe 2-cup measure, stir together a heaping 1/3 cup granulated sugar, 1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder. Add 6 tablespoons (3 ounces) milk, and a teaspoon of vanilla. Stir till smooth.

Mix 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon cocoa, and 3 tablespoons hot or cold coffee. Pour into the cup.
Gently swirl it in; don’t mix thoroughly.
Cook in the microwave for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes, depending how powerful your microwave is. When done, it’ll look set on top, and kind of mushy around the edges.
Turn the cake onto a plate. It’ll be layered with… well, let’s call it sauce. It’s actually semi-baked batter, but since there are no eggs in here, it’s fine.
