    That looks awfully nice, sickly? but very nice
    They were nice, not sickly at all due to the large chunk of cream cheese i added. They had about 1cm deep of cream cheese which really made it awesome and creamy. :yep:

    1 Tablespoon unsalted butter

    1 Tablespoon granulated sugar

    1 Tablespoon brown sugar, firmly packed

    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

    1/8 teaspoon (pinch) salt

    1 egg yolk

    3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour

    1-2 Tablespoons chocolate chips


    Melt the butter first (takes like 30s) then add sugar and vanilla extract and mix, then the egg yolk, then the flour and finally chocolate chips. Microwave for 40-50 seconds.

    A little bit simple, but nothing says "lunch" like a chocolate fondue! Microwave chocolate on low power. Boom. Dip biscuits, marshmallows, fruit...

    Also used to make microwave upsidedown cakes. So similar to chocolate cake in a mug, but with a vanilla sponge mixture instead. If you put golden syrup/jam at the bottom of the mug when you turn it out.... it's gooey and lovely!

    Hi guys,

    In the TSR Towers we have a nice big microwave and a large fridge to keep food in. I've been thinking - what is the nicest food I can prepare over lunch! I want to make a dish that will dazzle my co-workers!

    The rules are:
    I can buy ANY food to start with, but the food can't be pre-cooked (no microwavable burgers, that's cheating!)

    The food must be able to be prepared in an hour (I can leave stuff to set over night though!)

    Preliminary examples
    -Scrambled eggs +toast
    -Chocolate cake in a cup? thanks Shooks
    -Various salads
    -Large subs i.e. tuna and cucumber sub

    microwave quiche: http://fullthymestudent.com/1-minute...iche-in-a-mug/

    and for pudding this: http://www.culinaryarts360.com/index...rts-232-29455/ (although it is nicest with ginger biscuits and mandarin slices)

    Oh and chocolate cake in a cup is MUCH nicer if you mix in smushed up banana or some blueberries or raspberries.

    Pitta Pizza!

    One plain pitta bread slice
    Passata sauce or tomato puree
    Grated cheese
    olives
    sun dried tomatos and fetta

    Layer them on the pitta as you would do on a pizza. Whack it into the microwave on Pizza setting (most microwaves have this nowadays) and Enjoy!

    You could even try bagel pizza!

    Chocolate mousse.

    I don't really use a proper recipe to make this..

    I just chuck in a couple of marshmallows and some dark chocolate along with a bit of cream in to a bowl and microwave it. Then I make some whipped cream and fold in the melted chocolate/marshmallow mixture into the whipped cream.

    Consider it done! (Given that I'd eat any or all of those ingredients on their own, it can hardly fail!)

    A treat for when I return from holiday - no more supermarket shopping to be done before then.

    What ever you don't try this. It will end up messy and a serious fire hazard.
