It’s 10pm, Masterchef repeat is on and they’re making desserts and you suddenly realise that you need some cake. You have 5 minutes before the end of this advertisement coz you don’t have Astro PVR! What do you do?! Microwave Milo Cake!

It's so easy you wanna make it everyday!

Serves 2 people

Mix in a little bit of coffee powder to get mocha flavour.

Nuke it for only 3 minutes if you want it slightly fudgy.

Make sure it is microwave safe. Or you'll be cleaning up a lot of mess

Taste just like chocolate cake!

Let the ice cream melt a bit before you attack!
