Microwave Chocolate Cake

This recipe makes an 8x8 chocolate cake in about 10 minutes if you know where all of your ingredients are.  You can cut it into 9 servings (just right for us) or 12 smaller pieces.  It has a yummy sauce and I like it with ice cream.  This is an old Taste of Home recipe.

Microwave Chocolate Cake
1 1/2 c. flour
1 c. sugar
3 Tbsp. baking cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. cold water
1/3 c. oil
1 Tbsp. white vinegar
1 tsp. vanilla

In a bowl, combine dry ingredients.  Stir in wet ingredients until well blended.  Pour into an ungreased, microwave safe 8x8 dish.  Microwave on high for 6-8 min. (Turn every 2 min if you don't have a turn table.)  Cake is done when a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

Sauce:
1 c. sugar
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
2 Tbsp. baking cocoa
1 c. very hot water
dash of salt
1 Tbsp. butter or margarine
1 tsp. vanilla

In a 1 quart, microwave safe bowl, whisk together dry ingredients, then whisk in water.  Microwave on high for 2-3 min. or until mixture boils.  Microwave 1 min. more.  Stir in butter and vanilla.  Spoon over pieces of warm cake.

Notes:  Yes, this recipe really has no eggs.  And watch the sauce carefully so it doesn't boil over in your microwave (just make sure and use a big bowl and you'll be fine).
