  • First, in a microwave-safe mug ( roughly 1 cup ( roughly 1 cup measurement) all purpose flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Then give the dry ingredients a good mix. (here you can also use brown sugar instead of white to give the cake a nice gooey texture).
  • Then add in the milk, vanilla essence and oil. Mix all the ingredients until well incorporated. Finally mix in some milk chocolate chunks into the batter.
  • Now microwave for 1 minute. (here I've used a 1200w microwave, if yours is different then the timing may vary. If the microwave you have is less than 1200w, it may take you up to 1.5-2 minutes to make the cake).
  • Take it out of the microwave oven and let it cool for a couple of minutes.
  • Dust your cake with some icing sugar and drizzle it with some chocolate sauce or you can serve the cake with some whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!

    I would like to ask under what temperature should I set my microwave oven that is correct for baking because in my microwave I can only see Low medium and high temperature.

  2. This was delicious! Best microwave chocolate cake and ready in no time. For those wanting more rise I had success substituting baking soda for powder and adding 1/2 tsp vinegar (apple cider vinegar but white would also work).
