Motivation to Workout

Mix. Once mixed, add to microwave safe dish (glass or ceramic works well), and cook well until done (start at 2 minutes and 15 seconds). If it’s still ‘wet’, cook longer, going a few seconds at a time so that it doesn’t get tough or over cooked. Put onto a plate, pick a handful of berries, and microwave the berries for 45 seconds until soft and mushy, pour over the top of the cake and ENJOY!
