This week on Jaime’s Lazy Late Night Cooking Corner, the show where I whip up last-minute single serve microwave treats every Thursday while wearing my robe, we are celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with this 3 Minute Microwave Guinness Chocolate Cake recipe.
This is a rich, nutty, and melty-ooey-gooey good Guinness chocolate mug cake. Colleen even had to jump onscreen for a bite, definitely the most popular among the crew of our series’ recipes thus far.
So far in our series, we’ve made Single Serve Microwave Rice Krispy Treats, Microwave Blueberry Cobbler in a Cup, Microwave Strawberry Shortcake for Two, a Microwave Lemon Bar, Two-Minute Microwave Cheesecake in a Cup, and even a Microwave Cinnamon Roll. Now it’s time to watch the video above and learn how to combine Guinness and chocolate for my favorite lazy late-night microwavable treat yet.
Learn how to make 3 Minute Microwave Guinness Chocolate Cake in a Mug in the video above, and also get the recipe after the jump…
