Yeah I like to use the microwave as little as possible. I think I will try it in the oven tonight and see how it goes. I'll let update then.
Have you tried it in the oven yet? I'm not a big microwave fan either - this is just how the recipe was. I'd love to be able to make a whole batch and toss them in the freezer or something.
Man, I don't know what I did wrong but this was awful! Very chocolaty taste. Only cooked it for one min. and it was hard. Eatable, but hard and dense. And even an eggy taste. I might try it again and cook for a shorter time and leave out the coco. but first try I was not impressed. Sorry.
Hmm - the cocoa is in there just for color. Are you sure you used only half a measuring TEASPOON full? Did you stir up the egg really well before adding the dry stuff? Did you use baking powder? (not soda). Maybe your microwave is higher powered than mine - you could try it at 80% or something. One minute in mine would definitely not cook it all the way. The bread is slightly dense, but should turn out kind of like the texture of whole wheat bread, not hard at all. Sorry it didn't work for you.
