Lentil Chocolate Brownie Microwave Cake, gluten free


I'm trying out homemade Lentil flour for my baked goods today.  Lentils don't need to be soaked and are small enough to grind easily in a coffee mill.  This cake comes out like a rich chocolate brownie with a nice dense cake like texture. So for 5 minutes work and apx .75 cents in ingredients you can have a low carb treat whenever the mood hits. Not bad!

 My coffee cup is very large.  Make sure whatever you use has room for expansion!

 It smells incredible when it's cooking.  I could barely wait the 3 minutes!
