90 Seconds to Chocolate Bliss: The Easiest (and Healthier!) Lava Cake You'll Ever Make

Posted by Nick Sheridan on

Craving a decadent chocolate treat but short on time and ingredients? Look no further than the 90 Second Choc Microwave Cake! This recipe, featuring just three simple ingredients, is your answer to satisfying your sweet tooth in minutes with a healthier twist on the classic chocolate cake. Say goodbye to long prep times and complicated instructions, and hello to pure chocolatey indulgence that fits even the busiest schedule.

The Power of Three:

This recipe's beauty lies in its simplicity. All you need are:

  • Ripe bananas: The riper the better, as they mash smoother and provide natural sweetness. They act as the base, replacing refined sugars and adding nutrients like potassium and fibre.
  • 99th Monkey Almond Butter: The star of the show! Its creamy texture and rich almond flavour create a decadent base for your chocolate cake. Choose any variety you like - smooth or crunchy - each adding a unique depth of flavour and texture.
  • Cacao powder: Unsweetened raw cacao powder provides pure chocolatey goodness with the added benefit of antioxidants and minerals. Use high-quality cacao powder for the best flavour experience.

    Bonus Ingredient:

    For a true "lava cake" experience, add a square of your favourite dark chocolate in the centre before microwaving. The chocolate melts, creating a gooey, warm centre that is pure bliss in every bite.

    From Mug to Magic:

    The process is incredibly straightforward. In a microwave-safe mug, simply mash the banana until smooth, stir in your chosen 99th Monkey Almond Butter, and add the cacao powder. Mix well until a consistent batter forms. If you're using the chocolate square, gently press it into the centre of the batter. Pop the mug in the microwave for 90 seconds (adjust slightly based on your microwave's power) and voila! Your single-serving chocolate cake is ready.

    Beyond Basic:

    While delicious on its own, there are endless ways to personalise your 90 Second Choc Microwave Cake:

    • Toppings Galore: Get creative with toppings! Dollop some yoghurt on top, drizzle with melted chocolate or nut butter, sprinkle with chopped nuts or berries, or add a scoop of your favourite ice cream for a truly decadent treat.
    • Spice it Up: Add a pinch of cinnamon or cardamom, for a unique flavour twist.
    • Make it Vegan: Use a plant-based yoghurt or ice cream, and ensure your chocolate square is vegan-friendly.
    • Double the Fun: This recipe easily doubles or triples for sharing with friends or family. Simply multiple the ingredients for the amount of people you are serving.

      A Healthier Indulgence:

      This recipe offers a guilt-free alternative to traditional chocolate cakes. Here's why:

      • Naturally Sweet: Bananas provide natural sweetness, reducing the need for refined sugars.
      • Healthy Fats: 99th Monkey Almond Butter boasts healthy fats that offer satiety and support nutrient absorption.
      • Protein Power: Almonds offer a small protein boost, making you feel fuller for longer.
      • Minimal Ingredients: No artificial flavours, additives, or preservatives – just pure, wholesome ingredients.

        90 Seconds to Self-Care:

        Let's face it, life gets busy. This recipe is a reminder that indulging in delicious treats doesn't have to be complicated or time-consuming. Take 90 seconds for yourself, whip up this easy chocolate cake, and savour every bite as a mini act of self-care.
