“This fudgy, easy can’t-wait microwave lava cake is ready in only 7 minutes and uses cake mix and prepared frosting in the can. Mind blowing!”
1 (15.25 ounce) package spiced cake mix (such as Betty Crocker®)
1 cup water3 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 (16 ounce) can prepared chocolate frosting
1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar (optional)
- Grease a microwave-safe bowl or ramekins with nonstick cooking spray.
- Combine cake mix, water, eggs, and oil in a large bowl and beat with an electric blender on low speed until moistened, about 30 seconds. Increase to medium speed and beat for 2 minutes. Stir walnuts and chocolate chips into the batter. Pour half of the batter into the prepared microwave safe bowl or ramekins.
- Spoon chocolate frosting over the batter and spread evenly over the top. Pour the rest of the batter on top.
- Microwave until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean, 7 minutes for a bowl or 3 to 4 minutes for smaller ramekins. Remove from microwave and let rest, about 5 minutes. Dust with confectioners’ sugar.
