With such cold weather and love season around, it calls for some quick and easy sweet recipe.


4 cubes of chocolate (I used Lindt dark chocolate. You can use milk chocolate if you want it to be sweeter)

¼ cup all-purpose flour

¼ cup butter

2 tbsp sugar (You can add more as per taste)

Pinch of baking soda

Pinch of salt

1 tsp vanilla essence (optional)


Warm the chocolate and butter together so that it becomes liquid (Heat in microwave for 30 - 40 seconds)

Add all the other ingredients and heat for another two to three minutes in microwave and viola, your chocolate mug cake is ready!

Note: You might need to heat more due to cold weather. Check for texture and adjust timer to a few more seconds or a minute until you get cake like texture.

Variant: You can insert a big cube of chocolate inside the mixture for lava cake effect
