Let me just be the transparency here for Karen's Cake in a Cup video tutorial. Yum-O! Just when you need an itty-bitty bit of chocolatey goodness, this microwave, mix it up in a cup concoction is the perfect fix.
Here's the recipe, but you need to click here to see Karen and a friend making it on her now defunct show, Playing House. I mean this is surely one of the answers to all of life's problems.
