Your child comes home demanding a ‘surprise’ party for her friends – which ends up as a greater surprise for you? Not to worry. 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!
