Microwave Cake? Really?

A couple weekends ago Chuck's Sister came over to hang out with him and after I finished up a sewing project I decided to try my luck at another Hungry Girl dessert recipe. Now I was a little skeptical of the Mini Microwave Triple Chocolate Cake because of the whole microwaving part but I also want to try every recipe I can for Hungry Girl.

Gathered all my ingredients, which I luckily had already so I didn't have to run to the grocery store.
First you mix some cake mix and some yogurt.
Pop into the microwave for 1 minute. Then while it's cooling for 5 minutes I mixed some chocolate syrup and whipped topping.

After the mini cake has cooled top it with the whipped topping mixture and then drizzle a little more chocolate syrup on the top.

Looks pretty good...smelled pretty good, but I still wasn't convinced...

It took one bite for me to change my mind! It was incredible! Chuck and Jenny both really liked them too! Chuck even had a second one LOL! And now we have a huge container of fat free vanilla yogurt and Devils Food Cake mix. Another suprising thing I learned from this is that I really liked vanilla yogurt...I even bought some frozen peaches to add to it for a breakfast or snack!
Check out the Microwavable cake recipe here. Seriously check it out and try it!!!

ohhh yummy.
I have made angel food cake from a mix in the microwave. You only have to use 1/2 the package. But you get a full size cake. Pretty cool I thought.
I guess I should share how to do this.
1/2 pkg of angel food cake.
2/3 cup water.
Mix with fork until wet.
Cook on high (in microwave) for 4 to 5 minutes in bunt pan.
invert on cooker lid.
Let set for 20-30 minutes.
So moist.
