I needed a quick gluten free dessert for one person and this was perfect! I made it twice; the first one seemed a little gooey so we had to test it. It was tasty but not quite done after 50 seconds on high. The second one I cooked for 60 seconds and it was perfect! This is great whether you need a gluten free dessert for a guest or just a quick chocolate fix!
