Step 1

Combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and cocoa powder and sieve well. Add the melted butter and mix well.

Blend the egg and milk until combined. Add the milk and egg mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, and mix well to get a smooth batter.

Pour half of it into a microwave safe bowl or mug and push the chunk of chocolate/Dove chocolate right into the center of the batter.

Top it with the remaining batter, taking care that the chocolate doesn’t protrude out of the batter.

Microwave on HIGH for 1-2 minutes or till cooked.

Keep aside for a minute, unmold and serve plain or with a dollop of vanilla ice cream.
