2 Minute Eggless Microwave Chocolate Cake in a Mug

Hi all. This is my first of the hat-trick recipes of this month. This month's theme is going to be chocolate / coco. Because what better way to drive away monsoon blues, but chocolate! 

Chocolate inspires, chocolate mends a broken heart and chocolate keeps you going. And if you can get the much needed choco-dose in just 2 minutes, what can get better? Midnight cravings or early morning pangs, this one is extremely effective ;) And this one is amazingly popular with kids. They love to dig into a cup that holds gooey chocolate cake soaked in chocolate sauce instead of milk. It also makes a great gift , handmade but without slogging for hours together in the kitchen. What say? Want to sink your teeth in this sinful treat? So, let’s get started! I found this recipe at  2 minute eggless chocolate cake and made few additions like chocolate sauce and colourful sprinkle. 

3 tbsp maida / All purpose flour
1.5 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp + few for garnish - chocolate chips
3 tbsp - sugar
1/8 tsp - baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
3 tbsp oil – neutral cooking oil
3 tbsp milk
¼ tsp vanilla essence
3-4 tbsp chocolate sauce (I used Hershey’s)

1.      Sieve maida and cocoa powder.
2.      In a microwave safe mug add maida, cocoa powder, sugar salt, baking soda and chocolate chips. Mix well using a small whisk or a fork.
3.      Add oil, milk and vanilla essence. Combine everything making sure there are no lumps. The batter should be smooth.
4.      Microwave uncovered on high power for 2 minutes. And allow to cool.
5.      Pour chocolate sauce and garnish with choco-chips and colourful sprinkles.

And now, dig in and watch your spirits uplifted!
