I spent an entire afternoon testing and perfecting this recipe (you can see all the photos of my tests at the bottom of the post), and this recipe came out the clear winner. So, enjoy!
Like the name suggests, this 5-Min Microwave Paleo Chocolate Cake recipe is super fast and easy to make – in 5 minutes, you can enjoy Paleo chocolate cake again! And if you love this recipe, check out my microwave Paleo bread recipe as well (it’s also really easy!).
I have been concerned in the past too about using the microwave, and so I researched all the dangers that were claimed extensively and talked to scientists as well as other people in Paleo like Sarah Ballantyne, and I have not come across any credible scientifically-backed reasons to stop using the microwave. If you are concerned, then I’ve written about what I researched and my rationale for continuing to use the microwave as part of my cooking in this article here.
If you would prefer not to use the microwave for cooking, then that’s completely fine. I am not here to judge anyone, and I hope you likewise won’t judge me for my beliefs. We have compiled an extensive list of Paleo cake recipes here (most of which do not use the microwave), and so hopefully one of those delicious recipes will work for you instead.
