4 tbsp or 30 g of sugar or any other sweetener of your choice 
1/ 4 cup of all purpose flour mixed with 1/ 8 tsp of baking powder
1/ 4 tsp salt or kosher salt

You could also add chocolate chips or chocolate shavings to the batter if you want to be a little extra.



1. Add the milk, oil, salt, sugar into a mug and whisk until most of the sugar has dissolved.

2. Next add in the cocoa powder and flour and mix it until all the ingredients have been properly combined and there should not by any clumps.

3.Place the mug in a microwave for about 1 minute and 30 seconds or until its cooked. Or until a toothpick that you inserted comes out clean.

4.Then serve with a scoop of chocolate, vanilla or any other ice cream of your choice, or a light dusting of powdered/ icing sugar or melted chocolate or sprinkles on top. The options are simply endless as this cake can be topped with any thing that your heart desires.
