- 1 egg
- Blend the flour, cocoa, baking powder, splenda together in a Pyrex two-cup baking dish.
- Add water, melted butter and egg and blend together thoroughly with a fork.
- Cover with plastic wrap and cut a small vent in the top to vent.
- Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute or until a knife comes out clean.

Mercy, I have to confess I did not believe a cake made with soy flour would taste good at all, but changed my mind as soon as I tried your recipe! I still cannot believe how delicious and soft this cake is! I unmolded the slightly cooled cake on a dish, surrounded it with slices of fresh peach and decorated with whipped cream--heavenly! I wonder what the result would be if I put a square of bitter-sweet chocolate inside the raw dough%u2026 I bet I could fool everybody into believing it's regular molten cake! I'm going to try this trick on my next dinner party.
I used golden flax meal -- same measurement, and added 2 tsp plain yogurt for moisture. This recipe turned out beautifully. For the topping I whipped one cup heavy cream, 1 heaping T cocoa powder and 2 pkts of Splenda with my power stick to a thick, stiff consistancy. Perfect balance to the dense cake and just the right sweetness. The cake cut in half and was perfect for 2 servings. I am already making recipe 263983 South Beach Muffin, which is pretty similar and it turns out great. I imagine "add ins" would work with this recipe, too. Thanks for dessert, Mercy.
I'm still in shock that you can pull this off - cake in a cup in a minute. Perfect for those with zero impulse control. I'm going to keep playing with this - I used garbanzo bean flour, which is a little less bitter than soy flour and will try the almond four next. Also, I don't think it needs a full minute in my microwave. (I have to tell you, watching this thing rise in the mug in the microwave was pretty ... ummmm ... astonishing.)
