  1. Use an oversize mug for this recipe and it will serve two. If you want to make this for one, use a smaller mug, a wide mouth one is best and half the recipe.
  2. Melt the butter in the mug. Add the sugar, flour, cocoa and salt. Stir through until it starts to combine.
    Spoon in the milk. Crack in an egg. Add the baking powder.
    Stir well until lovely and smooth and thick.
  3. Drop on the chocolate into the centre of the batter and allow to drop naturally into the batter. Spoon the water over the chocolate.
  4. Place in the microwave for 1 minute 20 seconds.
    Remove once cooked and the top of your lava cake should be slightly moist when you touch it with your finger.
    Now just get your fork and dig in. Oh don’t forget this is meant to be shared.
