Hi, I am Shikha Batra and I have got a recipe that will get your child's taste buds tingle and they will not be able to resist it. It is the recipe of a Chocolate mug cake which is not only luscious, tempting, soft and spongy but yummilicious too. This cake is eggless. So, children who do not eat eggs or are allergic to eggs can enjoy having it too. I would also like to add here that this cake is made in a mug, cooked in a microwave and does not need any elaborate preparation too. The best part is, it's a quick recipe which will be ready in just three minutes. Yes, you heard it right in just three minutes. So, with no further delay let's begin with the recipe.

To make the chocolate mug cake you will need:

  1. A regular mug
  2. 1 Measuring spoon
  3. 1 teaspoon
  4. Forks
  5. Microwave

  • 1 tablespoon of chocolate powder or 1 tablespoon of chocolate syrup

  • 2 pinches of baking powder,

  • 1 pinch of baking soda
