Two dessert recipes in a row! It was bound to happen 🙂
I’ve got another Pedal Pictures post coming soon, and Jonty’s working on a climbing post, so non-foodies, don’t fear!
For St. Patrick’s Day, we modified our beloved 1-minute Microwave Chocolate Pot recipe. Instead of using milk in our usual recipe, we substituted Guinness. It was a nice change from the usual! The taste of the Guinness in this recipe is mild, only just noticeable, but a nice enhancement.
When you need a gooey single-serving chocolate cake recipe ASAP, this is the dessert for you! It mixes together quickly, and is cooked in the microwave for about a minute (depending on your microwave).
You start my mixing the dry ingredients together (flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, sugar and salt), then add the liquids (greek yogurt, Guinness).
Pour into well-greased ramekins and microwave for about a minute each.
Let the pots cool slightly, then turn out onto a plate and you’re ready to dig in! If you can’t wait for the pots to cool, just eat directly from the ramekin (like we’ve done in the past!) 🙂
We like to sprinkle a bit of Maldon sea salt on ours. Deeelish!

- 6 tbsp flour (AP, spelt, whole wheat pastry)
- 3 tbsp dark cocoa powder
- 3 tbsp sugar
- ½ tsp baking powder
- Pinch of sea salt
- 2 tbsp greek yogurt
- 4 tbsp Guinness beer
- Mix the dry ingredients together very well. Add the yogurt and Guinness, whisk to combine. The batter should be fairly thick. If it is too runny, add a bit more flour, if it is too stiff, add a bit more Guinness.
- Divide the batter into two well-greased ramekins.
- Microwave for 45 seconds to one minute per ramekin. This will depend on your microwave, so be prepared to experiment a bit. If you want a very gooey centre, microwave for less time. For a slightly runny centre, the chocolate pots should look slightly uncooked on top.
- After cooling the ramekins slightly, turn out onto a plate, or just eat directly from the pots, if you can't wait!
