  • Cook Time: 2 mins
  • Total Time: 7 minutes
  • Yield: 1


  • Flour – 1 tablespoon
  • Powdered Sugar – 1 or 1.5 tablespoons
  • Cocoa Powder – 1.5 teaspoon
  • Milk – 4-5 tablespoons (use water if vegan)
  • Salt – a pinch
  • Baking Soda / Soda bi carb – a pinch
  • Baking Powder – 1/8 teaspoon
  • Butter / Oil – 2 teaspoons
  • Modelling / Cooking Chocolate – a huge chunk


  1. Sift together flour, sugar & cocoa powder
  2. Add salt, baking soda, baking powder & mix well
  3. Add melted butter / oil and mix
  4. Add milk 1 tablespoon at a time & mix well to get a smooth batter
  5. Pour into a microwave safe bowl
  6. Push the chunk of chocolate right into the center of the batter. (Make sure the chocolate doesn’t protrude out of the batter. It has to completely disappear into the center)
  7. Microwave on full power for 1-2 minutes. (Microwave time varies. Change accordingly)
  8. Let it sit for a minute, unmould & serve plainly or with a dollop of Vanilla Ice cream


– Microwave time varies, so check if the cake is done after 1.5 minutes
– This is best eaten warm as when it gets cold, the chocolate starts to harden. You can always re-heat and eat
