Cook for about 1 minute. Times are going to vary so keep an eye on it.  I had to stop mine after 45 seconds. Then put it in again for another 10 - 15 seconds.  It's very HOT, so be careful!

Let it cool a little bit then you can eat it right out of the ramekin or take a knife and loosen the sides and transfer it to a serving dish to decorate with whipped cream \ud83d\ude01
