This is a much soughted out recipe and great for a chocolate craving . It has to be eaten immediately as it tends to get a bit hard and dry if kept. I have an eggless and a version with egg and shall give you both the options. Please make sure the mug you use is microwavable and that the batter is just fills one third of the mug (this cake tends to rise and rise!!). Please do not use any plastic mugs . I am not in favor of cooking in the microwave , and keep on getting requests for micro recipes. Frankly I would rather bake my cake in the oven.
4 tablespoons of all purpose white flour (maida)
3 tablespoons of sugar
1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
A pinch of salt and a dash of lemon juice
¼ teaspoon of baking powder OR 1 egg
3-5 tablespoons of milk (or 1 tablespoon if using egg), or lactose free milk, soya milk, etc
I used my amazing bullet to make the batter. I put all the ingredients into the blender and pulsed it till all blended together.
I put the mixture into a mug and microwaved it for 2 minuts on full power. It cooked in those 2 minutes. If yours remains uncooked after 2 minutes (that varies from microwave to microwave), cook it for about 15-20 seconds more or till cooked. This should be eaten as soon as its cooled or else it gets hard. If it gets hard, don’t panic or throw it away, make cake pops out of it or put it into custard!
