I got this recipe in an email. It was billed as the "Most dangerous cake recipe in the world" (I wasn't able to add the cooking time, because the shortest time in the chart is only 5 minutes; this cooks for 3 minutes. Of course, some microwaves vary in their cooking times, so you may need to adjust the time).
