How to make it

  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar, flour, cocoa, salt, baking powder, and espresso powder.
  • Add the eggs, melted butter, and vanilla, beating until smooth.
  • Scoop the batter into a lightly greased 9-inch microwave-safe pie pan (glass or ceramic), or a microwave-safe 9-inch round or 8-inch square cake pan.
  • Pour the boiling water very gently over the top of the cake; don’t stir it in.
  • Cover the pan with a dinner plate, glass lid, or whatever you usually cover pans with in the microwave.
  • Microwave the cake for 5 minutes at regular power.
  • Remove the cover, and poke a spoon into the center of the cake.
  • It should be set, but have a layer of chocolate "sauce" at the bottom. If it's done, remove it from the oven, and wait 5 minutes before serving.
  • If it seems way too moist, put it back into the microwave, without a cover, and cook for another minute or so.
  • Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar, if desired, before serving.
