Everyone loves Chocolate!! On readers special request, here we are with an easy to follow chocolate cupcake recipe. It just takes 5 minutes to cook these cupcakes as they are made in microwave.

Many of my readers have been asking about microwave recipes. In the past we have made oven cakes, cooker cake and now on readers request I made Microwave Cupcakes. Since I also bake cakes in a traditional oven, therefore I could easily compare the outcomes of the two recipes. The microwave cupcakes were as delicious as the regular oven ones. I do not have convection mode in my microwave, so I just used the regular one. I would like to advise you to read your microwave manual before you bake any cake to better understand the working of your microwave.

Try out this microwave chocolate cupcake's recipe and please do share your thoughts. Happy cooking, Shuchi
