  • 4 tablespoons - self-rising flour (if using all purpose, add a pinch of baking powder)
  • 3 tablespoons - cocoa powder
  • 4 tablespoons - brown sugar
  • 1 - beaten egg
  • 1 tablespoons - canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoons - vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons - milk
  • - caramel sauce
  • - confectioner's sugar
  • Directions:

    Add all ingredients except the caramel and the powdered sugar to a bowl and mix together.
    Spray two small ramekins with non-stick baking spray and fill about 2/3 full.
    Spoon some caramel in the middle of each ramekin. (I did about 2 teaspoons of caramel in each ramekin.)
    Cover the caramel completely with the remaining mixture.
    Microwave about 40-60 seconds. (The caramel in mine boiled up and over the ramekin, but we spooned the overflow back into the ramekin.)
    Sprinkle with powdered sugar immediately.
    Cool for a minute or two before serving.
