This dessert took me 25 minutes to mix & bake. And it was YUMMY! I made a whole batch because I didn’t have a microwave dish big enough for a half batch. It’s enough for 4 large servings.

3/4 cup milk
2 tsp vanilla essence (or 1/4 tsp vanilla powder)
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 1/4 cup self-raising flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder, sifted
1 slab (90g) dark/milk chocolate, roughly chopped
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 3/4 cup boiling water
1. Place milk & butter in a microwave safe dish (6cm deep & 8-cup capacity). Microwave on 100% for about 1 minute, until butter is melted.
2. Stir in vanilla, caster sugar, flour and 2 tbsp cocoa powder. Level with a spatula. Press chocolate pieces into the batter. Sprinkle with remaining cocoa powder and brown sugar. Pour boiling water over the back of a large metal spoon to cover the batter.
3. Place dish on an upturned plate in the microwave. Cook, uncovered, at 50% power for 10-13 minutes, or until a skewer comes out of the edge clean. Set aside for 1 minute before dishing up.
Serve with ice cream, cream and/or fresh strawberries.
