A chocolate-based cake is the easiest way to flatter kids, and even adults for that matter. And, with this easy Microwave Chocolate Sponge Cake recipe, it can be prepared in just five minutes. The best part is that the recipe makes use of common ingredients like flour, butter and curds. So, you need not worry about even a last minute shopping expedition. Just make sure you use up the cake immediately as it tends to dry up a little if left for a while – in which case, you can slice it, top it with ice-cream or custard, and a spoonful of fruits or dry fruits, to prepare a grand dessert!

Tarla Dalal    This brownie is a microwave recipe, and all microwave recipes get little hard after some time, we have mentioned to serve immediately. Also microwave timings vary from brand to brand.
