Magic Microwave Chocolate Cake

We moved into our motorhome full time just before the holidays, and we had very little money left to make any special treats. Plus we couldn't get the RV oven to light, but I remembered this great and simple way to make a nice little treat. It's amazing how tender and tasty this cake turns out with so little effort. This is a great solution if you don't have access to a conventional oven. Try different variations. Use vanilla cake instead of chocolate and top with cherries or strawberries. Experiment!
