    Microwave for 60 seconds, then check. If you don’t want the middle to be gooey, microwave for another 20-30 seconds.

    90 seconds should be enough, but if you have a lower powered microwave heat further in 15 second blasts until the middle is cooked, taking care not to burn the outsides.

    This is great topped with some ice-cream or frozen yoghurt. I’m sure whipped cream and marshmallows would be another lovely alternative.
