  • Take a microwave-safe ceramic mug and add flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and sugar to it. Mix it well with a fork.
  • Now, add milk, vanilla extract, and butter to the dry mixture and give the batter a good stir. Do make sure that there are no lumps.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips in the mixture and then microwave on high for about 60 - 90 seconds. You will see the cake rising till the brim of the mug, so that's when you stop.
  • Let it cool for 4-5 minutes and then top it with your favorite chocolate syrup, chocolate shavings, or berries and enjoy.


If you are making this cake for the first time, microwave it for one minute and see how it turns.
You can top the cake with amazing things like a scoop of vanilla ice cream, cherries, cream, or fruits you like.
You can make the cake ahead of time as well. Just remember to keep it covered with a lid.
