Then add egg and mix it well.
Add milk, melted butter and vanilla essence. Mix well.
Add chocolate chips (recommended) and mix it gently.
Microwave at 800 W for 1 minute.Check it after 1 minute. Then microwave for another minute or two.(each microwave is different, so adjust seeing your cake). Allow it to cool.

Eggless Chocolate cake in a mug
For eggless version, follow the same recipe omitting the egg. The cake will be more fudgy and will not be as soft as the ones with eggs. It tastes great if served with a scoop of ice cream.

Steamed chocolate cake in a mug
I tried steaming the cake and the result was not bad but it took around 20 minutes for the cake to be done.
Note – For 2 persons, follow the same recipe, but divide the batter into 2 microwave safe mugs (fill only up to 3/4) and microwave separately.
Since I do not have a microwave, I went to my friend’s house just to bake this cake and post it in time for Valentine’s day. Happy Valentine’s day!
